Red Hot July: Watercolor Landscape

Kalbarri W.A., watercolor landscape,

With the glorious fun filled, action packed, holiday up north to Kalbarri W.A. over –  now its time to kick back for a few hours.

Get our batteries recharged.

And then, head out for more great fun and adventuring in Western Australia.

Kalbarri Watercolor

This small 3×5 inch watercolor sketch packs in a lot of texture, layers, color and mood!


The little landscape painting was executed quite quickly.

With the main purpose to convey the colors and mood of the region.

I am pleased enough that it reflects the mood,  colors and richness of the rugged ancient landscape that prevails along the Western Australian Kalbarri region.

In the upcoming weeks, I look forward to free artistic expression to expand and create from my memories, images and my love of the land!

“Out Playing”……….

In the upcoming weeks, I’ll catch up and answer…. all your fabulous comments and messages you have shared with me recently whilst I’ve been   “Out  Playing”!





If you find yourself  – Bored with the same old holidays.



Looking for something a little bit ‘different.’

Looking for an adventure.

Or a trip, trek, or for a drive  – I can highly recommend the awe inspiring Kalbarri, Western Australia region.

My expectations were high.

And yet, what we were provided surpassed by a mile those expectations.



  • Whale watching
  • Thousands of wildflowers
  • Sunsets that are stunning
  • Gorges that plunge right into the ocean
  • Ocean waters: cobalt teal, sparkling blue turquoise, ultramarine and frosted mint froth
  • Murchison River, a rugged chasm of a river that’s  400 million years old
  • Steep plunging gorges of red,  abstract textures & detailed intricate patterning
  • Kangaroos hopping about, willy nilly
  • Birds, birds, birds!
  • Ideal Weather –  not too cold, not too hot
  • gosh,  what more do I need?
  • my sister’s company was the icing on the cake

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

  1. Wonderful little painting. Smaller is sometimes so much better 🙂 Sounds like you are having a wonderful holiday. Can’t wait to see the results though your artist’s eye. Enjoy the next adventure. Kalbarri sounds magnificent – wish it were a little closer as I’d be right there 🙂
