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.
Photo of which this painting was the subject
We are having such beautiful summer weather, I thought I would paint something with the feel of a carefree summer holiday.
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.
Here are four cards I designed for Valentine’s Day this year. They feature hearts painted in crimson, scarlet and red watercolour and Japanese yuzen chiyogami paper.
