Red Waratah : Watercolour by Joe Cartwright. This is another of the paintings I have done of this beautiful flower. If find my painting style is much tighter when I paint flowers like this – I adjust my style and technique according to the dictates of each individual painting I do. It was painted on Arches Rough or Cold Press (can’t remember now as it was sold quite some time ago – probably Cold Press however as that is what I would paint it on today). It was painted on a Full Sheet. The painting was based on a photo I took on a bright sunny day during the Sydney Olympics while walking through our botanical gardens.
