Bridport Warm Water


On our tour of Tasmania, I loved painting the rocks and blue-green waters around the north east side of the island. It as crystal clear water, and such a warm temperature for swimming.
If anyone is interested in visiting Australia, I suggest you spend a month or two in Tasmania. In a motorhome! It has the same attractions as the mainland without the hundreds of kilometres in-between stops.

Plein air painting with a touch of studio work after.

Lagoon Stairs


A painting from my Tasmania Travels: I painted this 'plain air' then finished it in the studio. I think this technique suits me: especially painting on paper. It's strong and receptive to watercolour techniques, as well as being good for think texture later. Acrylics dry fast, and the works can be stored in an art folder as we travel in the motorhome.

Wild Rocks at Stanley






I started painting while sitting on the rocks, but soon moved into the van. High tide and rain not my friend! 60 x 42cm

Breakers at Chain of Lagoons Beach


I painted this larger work at the beach in Tasmania. It was done 'plain air' with a bit of fiddling back at the motorhome.  The rocks are always my point of interest as they look great, and recent scientists have linked them to the North America! Who'd a thought!?!

Early Morning Rhine


I've had fun re-working this watercolour. It is a typical view of the Rhine from the ship, looking upstream into the morning sun and mist. It was October and the sun was low. Adding the acrylic paint with a palette knife bought the scene to life. Might be a turning point for me. 

Summer Road

Loved travelling through Tassie, as the distances were much shorter than on the mainland, and the summer was very mild.
