SEAWEED PAINTINGS


I have painted many beach scenes, often with  trails of washed up seaweed. Shells have also been a perennial favorite as have rounded beach stones. But recently I have been painting closes ups of the magnificent bull kelp which I enjoy photographing. I hope my students don’t mind as I enthusiastically encourage them to feel equally inspired by the wonderful textures and patterns (I am very pleased with their results so  far).

 Shiny wet tubes, grainy sand, tangles of softer brightly coloured weed and wonderful holes in the kelp like little windows to more patterns. These 2 watercolours are the first of what I expect to be a larger collection. One of them (completed last Saturday) is already framed to go in my Launceston Country Club exhibition which opens Saturday 27 August
