Glaçage du grotte

Watercolour painting of the interior of a tide-smoothed cave in Broome, Australia, with crisp, graphic color segments ranging from bright magenta to dark blue

Watercolour painting, 7″ x 9″ (18cm x 26cm)

This is an interpretation of a cave visited in Broome, Australiae. The many layers of the cave’s interior had been smoothed down by the tide’s comings and goings, causing for many vibrant color sections to emerge. A hole punched in the top of the cave adds a secondary light source for a multi-toned effect. Painted on cold press watercolour paper with Winsor and Newton paints.

Graphic Watson’s Bay

Watercolour painting, 9″ x 12″ (23cm x 31cm)

A very graphic watercolour painting showing a view from Watson’s Bay out across the Sydney Harbour. A dark purple tree looms in the foreground and encircles the Sydney city skyline with its branches, complete with suggested lorikeet shapes. Painted on acid-free cold-press watercolour paper with Winsor and Newton paints.

Manta Entanglement

Geometric watercolor painting of 3 manta rays and their movement trails circling a series of light rings

Watercolor painting, 8″W X 10″H

This graphic painting attempts to capture the experience of scuba diving at night with manta rays. The rays carve circular orbits around lights set up on the bottom and surface of the ocean, scooping up plankton attracted to the columns of illumination. It’s a magical, surreal experience, and this piece only scratches at the surface of it.

This painting took multiple rounds of sketching to figure out how the concept should be visualized.

The final piece was painted on Arches 140lb Coldpress with Winsor & Newton paints.
