Watercolour painting . Australian countryside by Rosie Kerr 2017
In the Garden is a watercolour painting with the subject of a small branch I found as I was weeding the garden . I was ready to throw it onto the compost heap but then noticed how pretty the leaves were and decided to paint it instead.
It is nearing the end of summer here. I have recently noticed some trees are changing from green to touches of yellow as Autumn approaches.
I was lucky to be able to participate in a workshop in June with Erik Dekkers, a gifted teacher and talented artist. Here are some of the paintings I completed during the day.
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).
