Good to know...

Visual representations and descriptions on the website are as accurate as possible,

however all the items are hand painted and because of the variation of screens, some colours may look slightly different from the photographed item.

Remember original artwork shows incredible details and brush strokes which are not well shown in a photo. The shades of white from the watercolour paper I use can alter during batches so if you are looking to buy a set of paintings please contact me for advice.
