watercolour, ink, watercolour pencil on A2 Mont Martre drawing paper.

This was painted on 13th November 2010, for the Fleurieu Art Prize

One Day Painting Competition

This competition focuses on landscape painting, which is not my main focus and something I don’t find easy, especially to paint in one day! I chose a single grape vine to paint, as this is somewhat of a bridge between the flowers I usually paint and the landscape required for this competition.

This was a huge amount of fun, but also a real challenge for me. I normally take my time over painting, and it can take days or weeks to finish a painting. I usually have several on the go, and had never before realised just how long it takes for me to create an artwork!
I was pretty rushed with this one in the end, so it is far from perfect, but I was still happy with it.

Needless to say I did not win !!

Mother Nature is my muse, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to capture her beauty on paper or canvas.

I like to experiment with media and subject matter, and am always creating, wherever I am.

    Just beautiful! So well designed and the colors are gorgeous (and my favorite).

  • Thank you Laura! It was a really grey, drizzly day and I wanted to brighten it all up…blues, greens, yellows…all Spring colours around here…normally it would be hot and bright at this time of year and all those colours would be vibrant in the landscape (I love thenm too)

    you should have won!!!! I just want to say that these last two art works added are among my favourites from you – don’t know why but they just are lovely and also gutsy and strong

  • Heee, yeah I was robbed LOL I am so glad you like these works, I think I am starting to get a real affinity with my own style. It’s taken a slight shift in direction lately and seems to be really working for me, at least in some of my latest works!! Thanks xxx
