Watercolour’s Magical Ingredient

Magic of Watercolour? A secret ingredient?  Look closer.     We love, watercolours. Happy colors. Objects we can define. And yet, watercolours…. so often, seem to escape our mastery. The More, we ‘try,’  the more muddled they become.     Watercolour Mastery I’d love to introduce you to Blamire Young. He is the true magicianContinue reading “Watercolour’s Magical Ingredient”

Unity….. imagine

I love this photograph of a pelican my daughter took while at the Perth zoo. It almost looked like an eagle’s wing, at first.  Massive and beautiful. The wing,  filled with black and white feathers joined together.   Imagine…….       The day wasn’t  bright nor shining. No. More the kind that haunts inContinue reading “Unity….. imagine”

Of All Places….

The Zoo.  A place to go for “lions, tigers and bears.” Ok, snakes, zebras, penguins and kangaroos, too.     Busy Perth Zoo The crowds are large. Jostling. Pushing.

Giraffe, brolga, tiger, hyena, wild dog,Continue reading “Black and White Patterns”

Silly Saturday: Yellow and Greens

A Silly take on last Saturday’s whirlwind trip. I’ve created an Abstract acrylic painting on canvas using the palette knife in fun swirls of yellow, greens, blues.  A bit of silliness, never hurts!   My interpretation and explanation for  ‘Silly’ today, is simply that the yellow represents the lovely yellow shirt our granddaughter wore whenContinue reading “Silly Saturday: Yellow and Greens”

Spring Splendour at King’s Park Perth

What a show! Acres of everlastings,  pathways of magenta, burgundy, claret kangaroo paws, with tall dark, handsomely curving branches framing Perth city views.   I was off to the city for a not so fun appointment which finished early. An ‘early mark’  that was fun.  King’s Park was only around the corner……. how could IContinue reading “Spring Splendour at King’s Park Perth”
