Over the school summer holidays, we took a short trip up to Hervey Bay with the kids. I was inspired to create some abstract watercolour paintings based on the photographs we took while we were there. As you can tell, the idea was not to try to faithfully recreate the photos, but rather use them as a point of inspiration. I really enjoyed working on these, and want to try this painting style again.
The inspiration for this painting was a posy of wildflowers, picked in the spring and beginning to dry and wilt as spring moves in to summer. Painted in shimmery gold paint, this painting is prettier in person than it is on the screen!

I called this painting ‘contemplation’ because this style of painting is very meditative to me. I never know what the finished painting is going to be like when I begin – I just go with the flow, and see where the paint takes me. I love this combination of colours!
