Watercolours – Records and Memories

“looking and seeing are two different things. It is only when I paint or draw what I am looking at I truly see what is there.”

When I sketch out in the landscape I deepen the connection between how I experience a place. I realise that I choose a particular place because of other influences that then inform how I translate what is in front of me. I only hope that you might see it too.

Each watercolour comes from the place in which it has been inspired of

“I like to use the water of the place I am painting if I can. I think it makes it even more of the place for me”

My little tin paintbox

I have travelled with this little box for 10years now. It is filled with colours I choose individually. I change out colours when going to different places especially Pilbara and Kimberley. Sometimes I am lucky enough to use pigments like ochre found out in the landscape. I also have mixed the rich red dirt with water to create washes.

Hamersley Gorge
