Leo’s watercolour and mixed media works are painted on Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. In a not particularly conventional fashion Leo works from dark to light applying a waterproof black Indian ink in a variety of dilutions to get a number of tones. Watercolour paint is then applied, sometimes wet on wet but more often than not Leo aids the drying process using a hair dryer.
