My Place

My Place
Watercolour
 on Saunders Waterford 425gsm Bright White
28.5cm x 38cm



The Egret is a common sight where I live here on the rivers edge. They are such an elegant bird.
During open studio yesterday I started this serene watercolour and stayed past closing time as I was so keen to finish it.
Thought you might also like to see "My Place" too flying my new purple "Fleurieu Art Trail" flag in the front garden.

  13. A great post Lorraine! Your egret painting is ethereally beautiful. You are so talented! Love your previous possum painting too. It's a shame such cute creatures can be so bothersome at night. Your house looks beautiful!
