Watercolour painting of a black eyed Susan vine (Thunbergia) by Rosie Kerr. After a weekend of flooding rain, the sun came out. This inspired me to paint these beautiul flowers. They seem to be popular in very old domestic gardens. My great aunt had one that completely covered their backyard shed.
I am on a month’s camping trip around rural NSW Australia. I have one paint brush and a tube of French ultramarine watercolour.
Every morning I take a walk around my district and check out the local gardens. We live in an area where bamboo grows to enormous heights. I found a small frond poking through a fence so decided to make it the subject of a painting.
A friend bought me a bunch of roses from the Byron Bay Farmers’ market
My neighbour’s passionfruit vine tumbles over our fence. Today I decided to paint the leaves of this pretty plant.
I found this creeper meandering up a wall as I was walking home from town.
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.
Summer Holiday Town. Continuing my summer theme. This isolated coastal town offers a break from busy routines.
I saw and old apple tree in a workshop yard in Tasmania and had to paint it. I have to admit that I have eaten a few apples from this tree.

We are having such beautiful summer weather, I thought I would paint something with the feel of a carefree summer holiday.
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.
