8" x10" watercolour and watercolour pencil on Arches 300gsm rough watercolour paper

A bit more experimenting with watercolour :)
There are so many beautiful Jacaranda trees in full bloom at the moment. They seem to have such a magical quality about them. I love the carpet of purple they always get beneath them.
I keep forgetting to take a camera with me when I go for a drive, so this one is just from my imagination.

    A simple but amazingly striking work or Art…love this Dianne :)

  • Thanks Elisabeth! It’s really simple yet there is something about it that I really like. I have always loved a jacaranda tree against a blue sky and this painting gives me that same happy feeling :)
