Drawn with a dark sepia inkpen, and then added watercolour washes. Mostly my art is inspired by scenes from home - my favourite place to be. I’m not often directly looking at the subject matter. However: bowls, teapots, fruit, a vase of flowers, pot-plants, the garden, gumtrees, paddocks, bushland, birds…are daily in view - providing... Continue Reading →

I’ve also continued to sharpen my... Continue Reading →
