As the days in the UK somehow struggle to become brighter and warmer, spring is somewhere in the air. We who paint from life and in natural light wait for the flourish of springtime plants to arrive.

Whilst travelling, I am catching up on my online reading.

This is just to say a big thank you to the erudite Writer, Curator, and Artist, Katherine Tyrrell, for including my ancient book Painting Flowers in Watercolour - A Naturalistic Approach on her Botanical Art and Artist website. 

Its all the more appreciated for the fact that Katherine understands and describes the book's perspective. Her book list contains very thorough and comprehensive selection of books that are both well chosen for their speciality and their worthiness. Do have a look.

Katherine's website and Facebook page continue to grow and gain interest not only from artists but curators and collectors as well as all lovers of Botanical Art. She is much applauded for her commitment to bringing this blossoming art into the lives of many people and continues to achieve so much for Botanical Artists worldwide. Thank you Katherine!
