Watercolour painting . Australian countryside by Rosie Kerr 2017
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 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.
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).
