Apples. Watercolour Painting by Rosie Kerr

 

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.

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.

Photograph to Watercolour Painting – Sunrise Byron Bay

I often get up early and walk along our closest beach Tallows Beach. Here is a sunrise photo I took one morning and the two paintings I completed using the photo as inspiration.

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.

Country Roads – from Photo to Watercolour ( Watercolor ) Painting

We spend each April camping in rural Victoria. I have used photography to capture the beautiful scenery we pass through on out travels, then use the photos as inspiration for watercolour paintings. I love the contrasts you see in the countryside at different times of year and in different regions.
