Small but beautifully formed...

I've been working on more small watercolours this year, it just seemed sensible in the current economic climate, we're all struggling to make ends meet for one reason or another.  I found the ideal size for ease of framing was 7.5" square which frames beautifully in a 12" square, so I set to work on a series.

Essence of  Summer, 7.5" x 7.5"
Purple Haze, 7.5" x 7.5"
Pond Peas, 7.5" x 7.5"
Red Day Lily. 7.5" x 7.5"
"Essence of Summer" and "Red Day Lily" are both displayed in the Kington Gallery.

Good thought; making smaller size paintings. Economic issues are everywere nowadays. And you give everyone an uppertunity to buy some art they love, without loosing money for yourself by lower your price for a bigger one.
My number one of these paintings is "Essence of summer". The very loose style, the soft red/orange. Love it! I want to look at this one for some time, maybe to find new interresting spots/ways of painting. My other favourite (I like them all)is the purple one. The petals looks so fragile! And peas -they are such beautyful flowers! Great work!
Take care and see you soon!

Thank you so much Catharina, my prices are already very reasonable on my larger works with most priced around £100, these small watercolours will be about half of that which brings them into the sort of price bracket most people are happy to pay for gifts. Fingers crossed this works!

Essence of Summer is a favourite for me too, thank you!!!
