This guy takes some lovely photos of Tasmania…. would love to do a watercolour of this but it is his artwork.

Island Images Photo Blog

If you have had a look through my blog you may have noticed that I have a fondness for mountains with clouds around them. When I notice stormy clouds settling around high ground I start looking for some sort of interesting foreground and hopefully some sunlight filtering through the advancing (or retreating) clouds, not always as easy as it sounds!

While driving around the Western Creek area in Tasmania I noticed clouds advancing across the Great Western Tiers, so after heading down a couple of side roads with no success I finally found this scene. It was just a matter of waiting for sunlight to hopefully illuminate the foreground to contrast with the threatening cloud over the mountains.

    Cheers Evelyn,,you go right ahead and do a watercolour, would be interested to see how it turns out!

  2. Thank you. I do not paint photo-realistically as photography is a wonderful art-form in its own right. Although some viewers comment that my work is very realistic, imy watercolours are really an expression of the mood and the brush work is very free using large soft brushes. Accuracy in placement of trees, shape of clouds etc is not critical to me. A lot of it is about the light…. not dissimilar to photography in that respect.
