For the last year and a half I have been painting one watercolour a day.  The first year I did en-plein paintings.  And this year I have been focussing on portraits.  Mostly portraits from photos.  I have been posting each day's work on Instagram under SJQWatercolour. 

I am keen to get my process for selling paintings going but my parrallel universe of team consulting is being very demanding.

Wherever I go I see watercolours. I paint landscapes in my mind all the time. I work out the composition, the colours, the painting process but not always how it would look. I sometimes take photos but prefer to sit and paint it right there. And when I sit in front of a clean sheet of paper all the cares of living melt away and I am absorbed by mixing colours, the shape of a brush, a bead of colour and the smell of wet watercolour paper (usually Arches). When I don’t paint for a short time I feel a sense of loss.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you from my private collection.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Please let me know your thoughts and keep up the great work!

I love your watercolor paintings especially the landscapes. Even though you're just painting everyday scenery, there's a spell in your style that draws the viewer into a refreshing perspective.
