Everglades Gardens, Leura - Sketch by 

mixed media (charcoal, watercolour pencils, coloured pencil)
A3 size on 300 gsm watercolour paper

sketch from a photograph taken at the Everglades Gardens in Leura up at the Blue Mountains. This house is kept open by the National Trust and was designed and built in the 1930s.

I am inspired by organic forms in nature as well as the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements so I tend towards work which is rustic and linear and colours which can also be decorative and often symbolic.

I love to paint and draw and to see other people’s art and am looking forward to making some connections with others – which is really what it is all about, for me.

    This is great Julie-Ann … so different to your usual work but I do like the crisp lines and hint of colour♥

  • Thanks Bev – I wasn’t sure whether to keep going with this…one of the big issues…but the house is Deco with simple lines so tried to capture that feeling. Take care XX

    .. I like black .. even though it’s not in vogue perhaps …
    .. this is beautiful .. I love the mix of the media a lot …

  • Hi again my friend !! Thanks for the comment – I found allthese works difficult and found out that i rely on colour to try to ‘solve’ a few problems that i get into with my work…anyway…this was interesting to try
