Over the last few months, I have been keeping a watercolour sketch diary which has a number of quick paintings based in and around the Stobo Valley and Estate. They are in preparation for some larger and more detailed works I am going to tackle over the coming months.

It is certainly something that I am passionate about, not only to celebrate the amazing countryside that surrounds us here in Stobo, but also to try and master watercolour painting as a technique.

These paintings only took a few minutes. Please feel free to let me know what you think and don't hold back!
