How do you work?

I’m often asked about what paper I use etc. I use acid free watercolour paper, good quality artist watercolours (so important – the student ones don’t seem to be so clear and beautiful to paint with) and occasionally dip pen and ink. After I’ve finished the painting I scan the artwork at 300dpi and tweak it a bit if necessary in Photoshop, give it a code and save it in a folder on my desktop. I now always send my artwork to clients digitally. There is one exception; a client who likes to scan artwork themselves and always do a beautiful job… therefore forgiven! I use an Epson Perfection scanner (V600 photo) and work on an iMac.
