Opal River

Watercolour on 300gsm fine Art Paper Watercolours

Known as the Rock Artist, I find myself fascinated by the light & colour that is enhanced by water flowing freely in the sunlight, bringing memories of fly fishing with my dad as a child. ‘Opal River’ is a part of this series of works, capturing the delicate colours in nature found in the rivers & streams. Painting these works find me lost in my imagination while Dreaming of clean fresh rain that brings new energy & life to our world.

Australian forests have burned & now the seed pods are opening to bring us a flush on new colour to the parched environment.
Contemporary landscapes are captured in this creative composition, telling the story of native flora with their unique ability to re-generate. The Australian Banksia bush flower is just one of many included in this remarkable rebirth of our land.
