Old Ferry & Trunkey Creek Shack, Australia

Old Ferry & Trunkey Creek Shack, Australia
Watercolour, Size 38 x 28 cms
The impetus for this painting was the wonderful photo by Carol McLaren Theolog of the old do-it-yourself ferry across the creek, and then I decided to combine it with my photos of the old Australiana shacks …which as usual, I had to doctor and improvise to come up with a reasonable composition…so at least I hoped.
Unfortunately, the Arches watercolour paper gave me hell again…it was one of those frustrating pieces of ”blotting” paper (alas sizing gone bad)..but I persevered.

Majestic Gum Tree with a Pioneer Hut

Watercolour, Size 57 x 38 cms     
One of those endearing scenes somewhere in Australia.
I used 3 of my photos to create this painting using artistic license as I went along.
For me the gum in forefront was very important, to show different tones, textures, smoothness/roughness of the tree.
Spot the sheep??
