Secret Garden

I was on holiday in Sydney Australia when I discovered a beautiful garden planted on the edge of the harbour.

Black Eyed Susan Vine.

They seem to be popular in very old domestic gardens. My great aunt had one that completely covered their backyard shed.

‘Cafe Flowers’ from Photo to Watercolour Painting

I recently had coffee in a local cafe and loved the little vase of fresh flowers on my table. I photographed the arrangement and then used the subject for a watercolour painting.
