{ autumn tones }

Painted gumleaves curling...

And another kind of gum....

A snippet of a recent magnolia watercolour & ink commission.

More leaves...

 I am well overdue for a post, and in scrolling through my recent work, my pictures felt very much like the change of season we are experiencing in Australia at the moment. I am always enamoured with the way flora ages and changes and decays.... but I am sure that the shift from the colour and brightness of Summer to a cooler, muted palette is certainly inspired by the beautiful world around me.

I love this - life will sometimes imitate art; but art will always imitate life.

Thanks for stopping by!
