I cut a pear in half and left it  in the open air for a few days to develop beautiful tones and details, then painted it. This is the original subject of the painting.

‘Cafe Flowers’ from Photo to Watercolour Painting

I recently had coffee in a local cafe and loved the little vase of fresh flowers on my table. I photographed the arrangement and then used the subject for a watercolour painting.

Watercolour Paintings “Down by the River” by Rosie Kerr Byron Bay

These are my entries for the annual local postcard size art exhibition. They depict what goes on beneath the surface of a river with, weed, slime and bubbles. I love painting with blues, greens and yellows.

Watercolour Painting Lighthouse Byron Bay

An early morning walk to the Byron Bay lighthouse is a great way to start the day. The sunrises are spectacular and you can often see sharks, sea turtles, whales, dolphins and stingrays in the water. Sea eagles and ospreys are just two of the bird species that can be seen on your walk plus if you are very quiet, you will probably see a wallaby or two nibbling grass beside the track.

Here is my watercolour painting of Byron Bay lighthouse – purchased by a honeymooning  English couple who were married in a lighthouse and who collect pictures of lighthouses.

I love cooking and often as I am preparing a meal or snack for friends and family, I look at the fruit and vegetables I am about to use and decide to paint them instead.

Autumn Road photo to watercolour painting

We often drive through the town of Tenterfield in the New England ranges and Glenlyon in Victoria. The autumn trees it both areas are beautiful. The entrance to both towns is through archways of brilliant trees. In this post, I have featured two photos which were the inspiration for the two paintings Autumn Road #1 (which uses the wet on wet watercolour technique) and Autumn Road #2 (which features wet on dry technique).

Autumn Road Tenterfield photo - used as inspriation for the two paintings.

Painting Mount Warning

Mount Warning is a beautiful mountain near to where I live. I love to photograph and paint it at different times of day and to use different techniques to show a variety of moods of the mountain.
