One of my latest watercolours...the rose. I used a reference photo that I found on the internet. A white rose. In the shadows on white flowers one can see all the colours of the spectrum.

The Deep

This is my most recent painting. It is an acrylic painting . Overall size is approximately 24''x 16''
The smaller rectangular section is painted on Yupo which is a synthetic "paper" manufactured in Japan. I sent for a sample pack from the company and received a number of A4 sheets in various weights.
Painting on Yupo is not like any other surface. The paint crawls and clumps in a most unpredictable manner. It is fun to use and after some practise, it becomes a bit easier to manage.
The texture in this central shape was obtained by pressing cling wrap into the wet acrylic paint. When dry the cling wrap was removed to reveal the textured surface.
The blue toned background to the textured rectangle is Acrylic paint on Arches rough 300gsm.

Dunes at Yambuk Vic.

This was painted some time back. I found it recently and decided it might be worth keeping. The day was blustery and cool. My husband was fishing on the beach ,so I took refuge in the sand dunes and did a couple of quick paintings. The other one was sold. Yambuck is on the south west coast of Victoria, Australia, not far from the historic and beautiful town of Port Fairy.
