Capturing autumn watercolours is a great way to breathe life into your environment illustration and hone your technique. My aim as an artist is always to try and fit as much into the world of my illustrations as possible. Making art reminds me what I'm excited about in life and I want the world I'm creating to reflect that.

The idea for this workshop was sparked from walking in a park near my house. Noticing what you specifically find interesting about the world around you (in cities or nature, or other art) is helpful for any artist developing their taste and style. Think about what you appreciate in your favourite artist's work or the things you like looking at, and how your own taste and experiences come together to create something new.
