This marsh grass is along the waters edge of a big Estuary across the road from where we are camping in Australia.The mud is an interesting red earth color. Still not much time for painting but I do what I can!
I managed to paint this between travelling times! We stayed a few days at Shark Bay on the Western Australian Coast, a beautiful place with golden sands, turquoise blue water and patches of grass...just the subject I love to paint. Happy to get another painting finished!!
I loved the way these Pelicans were standing waiting patiently for fishermen to come in from fishing. I still don't have much time for painting and limited internet, so I was pleased to be able to get this one finished!!
It's been a while since I posted... time has been limited for painting while we travel! I picked this Frangipani while out walking in Emerald, Australia. It is a favorite flower of mine and the perfume is gorgeous... I had it in a small vase in the caravan. Whenever I get time I will be painting I love the colors in the landscape here and the light is beautiful!!
Another flower from my garden! This will be the last painting I do for a few weeks...when I am settled in Australia I will start painting and posting again. I am looking forward to the different landscape and birdlife over there!!
This is one of only two flowers from my Gardenia bush this year, so thought I better paint it while I have the chance! It is a another favorite white flower of mine, the yellow pot was given to me by an old art friend.
I have been wanting to paint these two cows for a long time!! I came across them when I was out driving in the country.... I loved the combination of the white and brown. Cows are not easy to draw, I will
have to practice more...it took a while to get these two looking right!
It was good for me to have a change anyway!!
It has been quite a while since I have taken part in a Daily Paintworks challenge...but this week I had the perfect subject! Even though it's black and white it's actually painted with three colors.The old key belonged to a shed in a previous house we owned but I have no idea where the chain came from!!
My first painting for 2017 at last! It has been a long time since I painted with acrylics... I thought I would be a good idea to get used to them again because we are moving to Australia and will be living in a caravan traveling around. I will use water soluble oils as well but they still take a while to dry. I still prefer oils and will miss them! The upside is I love the Australian landscape and will be able to paint more plein air!! This is about 10 minutes from where I live...a favorite spot of mine with Eucalyptus trees along the waters edge.
