Black Eyed Susan Vine.

imageWatercolour 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.

Bamboo Watercolour Painting

IMG_2280Every 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.




Passionfruit Leaves. Watercolour and Gold Leaf

IMG_0094My neighbour’s passionfruit vine tumbles over our fence. Today I decided to paint the leaves of this pretty plant.

In the Garden.

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.



Summer Tree 1 and 2 watercolour painting


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.


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).
