Inspiration Station - Cathy Holtom

This week I'm sharing a secret watercolour inspiration source: Cathy Holtom.

Cathy lives in Sicily. I was lucky enough to visit Sicily for a holiday a few years ago, and I have a soft spot for it ever since. In Cathy's work, I recognize the atmosphere and the light, and sometimes I can even feel the island breeze!
