Sojourney – Watercolour stories

What is a watercolour?

Some lines, some colours on paper?


But the paper, the colour, the brush – each has a story.

The artist, the subject, the moment in time.
Each bring a small part to a slice of history.
Perhaps this slice is just a backwater to the grand flow of events in the world.
But it is a story none-the-less.

And here are some of my watercolour stories:
