Watercolours by Jackie Hadwin
I consider myself very lucky to have lived in and around Torver all my life, the breath-taking scenery and animals nearby inspire me every day.
Watercolour has captured my heart, I think it is one the most difficult mediums to work with but at its best the results are absolutely fantastic, the paint actually comes alive and moves on the paper. My technique is mostly wet in wet although an unpredictable outcome, when successful, the results are truly amazing.
