Watercolour Designs

Within my weaving design process I often use watercolours in my sketchbook to help me visualise different colour ways and pattern designs.

I have decided to share some of this process directly by creating watercolour studies based from these sketches.  The nature of weave is such that some of the lightness and transparency captured in watercolour is inevitably lost within a woven structure. These light, airy designs make me feel alive and joyful and I believe these watercolour studies really complement my contemporary woven work.
