Late last year Linda took up painting. No, not house-painting, but the sort you frame and hang on a wall. And she has made quite remarkable progress. Her chosen medium is water-colour and she loves it passionately. She’s set up a studio on our back patio and spends as much time as she can experimenting with techniques and testing herself with landscapes and still life.
Landscapes seem to be her favourite subject at the moment, and here’s her latest and my favourite. It’s based on a black and white photo I took near Marulan, NSW about 30 years ago.
You forget that I started out painting the garden bench!
