Old stone hut with rampant garden


Here's the type of scene that always gets me rushing to grab my sketchbook. Unfortunately when we spotted this one, when hiking in Spain, I didn't have time. Then just the other day I got to paint it as an online demo with folks around the world. Sharing the joy of painting it with others was just as good as being able to paint it onsite ;-)

Ink and watercolour
The painting is on thick, slightly off-white, watercolour paper.
The paper is artist quality Fabriano - acid free for longevity.
The paper size is 28 x 19 cm
Unframed

Viper's Bugloss, Bannockburn


On a hot summer's day I visited the Bannockburn Sluicings with a fellow artist from Cromwell. So inspirational! The wildflowers were rampant and the purple of the Viper's Bugloss against the yellow tussock hills were just made to to be painted.

Ink and watercolour
The painting is on thick, slightly off-white, watercolour paper.
The paper is artist quality Fabriano - acid free for longevity.
The paper size is 19 x 14 cm
Unframed

Note : this painting started as a demo painting, on the back of an incomplete painting. I'm really pleased with the finished painting and it has a spontaneity that probably happened because I wasn't precious about the paper ;-) The painting on the back doesn't affect the front at all and is not visible. So rather than it sit in a cupboard, I'm offering it for sale at a reduced price.

Old Miner's Hut, Cardrona


This little green miner's hut was hidden from the highway by trees for decades, and when those were chopped down (which is sad!) and the secret revealed, I couldn't wait to paint it.

Storm in the Pineta Valley, Pyrenees, Spain


One of our favourite parts of Spain to visit is the Pyrenees (of course!) and the Pineta Valley is certainly a favourite haunt. In high summer we often get crazy thunderstorms and the dark, building, clouds always gets my heart racing a bit. I absolutely love the dark, blue grey of thunderclouds and they're my favourite skies to paint.

I had a fantastic summer day with my happy dog, exploring the historic mining area of Bendigo this last summer.

Ruined house, Camaleno, Spain.


Camaleno is a tiny village just outside the national park of Picos de Europa in northern Spain. I love old buildings, stonework and yards filled with random things, so this old building caught my eye immediately. I met the owner of the building and he showed me old photos of the house from before it was ruined. Quite a treat!

New Zealand Robin

This is an original painting done in ink, watercolour and collage.

The painting is of the New Zealand Robin. These friendly little birds are a hikers friend. We almost always see them in the forests near our home and they will hop quite close in the hope that you will disturb the leaf litter and release insects into the air. If you rest quietly for a while they will sometimes even sit on your shoe or bag, cocking their heads to one side (just like in this painting), staring intently at the ground.
