I have a passion for colors and patterns. Playing with watercolor and lots of water, seeing the paint flow, going it’s own way blending, feels like magic. I can sit at my desk for hours doing this. The result is piles of paper with circles, dots and splashes which gives me an enormous mount of inspiration. I sometimes make cut-outs, or use them as backgrounds for new paintings. My ‘professional watercolor’ tubes from Winsor & Newton are my favorites, they have such vibrant colors. Especially ‘opera rose’ is one of my favorites, together with phthalo blue, they make some beautiful purple.
