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 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.
After 10 years selling beautiful Japanese Yuzen Chiyogami paper, I became a watercolour painter. Here are some collage works which combine them.
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.
