drawings & watercolour

"Watercolour a delicate medium and well suited to delicate subjects..."

A short course in natural history illustration led Tricia Hood to rediscover her original love of drawing. Tricia had always had an eye for detail and found herself absorbing the course. She was hungry to learn more, and her desire led to wanting to paint with colour. So watercolour seemed a natural progression.

Why Paint with Watercolour?

Watercolour is a delicate and some would say, tricky, medium to learn. However it is probably one of the best mediums for painting flowers. Tricia wanted to learn how to paint with water colours. As a result she did some tutorials through Anna Mason, a renown British botanical artist. Tricia found an affinity with watercolour and how it flowed. It’s portability was an added bonus, so watercolor became a favored medium.

Watercolour painting is made up of multiple layers of paint so patience and a gentle touch is needed. So it fitted well with Tricia’s style.  She gained confidence in watercolors and so began her journey painting her own designs.

What subjects does Tricia Hood paint in watercolour?

The subject of Tricia Hood’s watercolours are mostly floral, however she has started painting birds. This is likely a subject that she will explore in the future and produce more paintings of.
