I designed this palette because of my years of frustration when using the many designs on the market, and I think i’ve succeeded in making a product that meets the real needs of watercolour painters..

As the title suggests, I painted this picture to reflect the violent but rhythmic movement of foliage and grasses created by strong winds. I was fascinated by how shapes seemed to form and then dissolve in the landscape I observed on Ryton Willows one sharp spring morning. Created later from memory, I let my imagination off the leash allowing myself to explore the use of a wide variety of shapes and colours in this unrestrained gouache. I was pleased with the results, which I felt captured something of the madness of the turbulent twisting I had witnessed.
