Lichfield Cathedral 15" x 11" Watercolour Painting

This watercolour painting of Lichfield Cathedral was a commission.  I'm not really comfortable yet with buildings and need more practise to be able to paint them loosely without all the dreaded fiddling!

Sutton Park near Streetly Gate, Birmingham 15" x 11" Watercolour Painting

I made a video a few months back of me painting in the car in Sutton Park blanketed in snow.  I recently returned to the same spot and found this view when I got out of the car and looked behind me.
I've put 4 watercolour DVDs on Amazon so far but they're all studio paintings.  I'd like to film one outdoors and was thinking maybe here in Sutton Park or Kingsbury Water Park nearby.  I know when I've watched painting videos I generally find the ones set outdoors a lot more exciting to watch.
I do think I may be trying to run before I can walk, especially since I'm still shy about painting in public but if you don't buy a ticket you'll never win the lottery!

Loch Garten, Cairngorms National Park 15" X 11" Watercolour Painting

Here's a watercolour painting of Loch Garten in the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.  This painting features on one of my Watercolour Workshop DVDs available at  You can view my DVDs by searching Steven Cronin.  Racking my brain at the moment trying to figure out the best way of marketing them.  I used to use Google Ads years ago in a previous venture and thinking of trying it again.

Winter in Somerset 15" x 11" Watercolour Painting

This is an imaginary scene I painted but it reminds me of the country lanes in Brean, Somerset.  I've mentioned it in past posts that there are some wonderful countryside views but there is just nowhere to park or even a path.
