Over the last few weeks I have been experimenting with watercolours to paint some of Beijing’s birds. It’s been a lot of fun to try different techniques and, although the results will not win any prizes, I’m beginning to put together a portfolio which, over time, will expand beyond birds to include other wildlife. If you are interested to see how they are turning out, please go to this dedicated page, which will be updated as and when new paintings are completed.
Each of the paintings has taken no more than 45 minutes, an ideal way to spend a break from work.
