I am inspired to paint Australian landscapes by my environment.
Eucalyptus, or gum trees are the quintessential Australian tree, and one of my favourite subjects to paint. Mainly because of their beautiful coloured bark and the twisted shapes of their trunks.
Wattle trees feature beautiful happy yellow blossoms, and indicate the arrival of Spring. These delightful trees are found in abundance in our suburban gardens, and urban parks as well as nature reserves and the surrounding hills and countryside.
