Drying Rack - Norwegian Rosemaling.
I was asked by a friend to paint some folkart on her rack. Quite a daunting prospect. Afterall I stopped painting folkart designs, be it German folkart (Bauernmalerei) or Hinderloopen (Dutch) or Rosemaling (Norway) over 12 years ago  and was not sure if my brush will oblige.  This is my own design, roughly drawn with a pencil and then used flat brush for the scrolls.

Waiting for the Fishermen, Tea Gardens NSW

Watercolour Size 38 x 28 cms
Inspiration was my own photo taken at Tea Gardens in May 2013,  NSW Australia

Tea Gardens is a small town on the Myall River, just a short drive across the "whistling" bridge to neighbouring coastal town of Hawks Nest. Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest lie at the mouth of the Myall River and reflect a relaxed coastal lifestyle with a sense of peace and tranquillity. From here you can journey into the Myall Lakes National Park which is a spectacular blend of lakes, coastal forests & beaches. The National Park is internationally recognised for its wetland ecology and home to hundreds of species of birds
