The following print section and flower inspired watercolours are from my time spent in Sydney during the first lockdown in 2020. I was visiting for 2½ weeks and managed to stay for 3½ glorious months, exploring the Eastern suburbs from the 4 coastal apartments I rented.
My mornings were spent walking using my iphone to chronicle the amazing views I saw and my afternoons experimenting with watercolours and ink pens, inspired by bunches of flowers. By downloading a simple app on my ipad I began overlaying some of the coastal views and places of interest I visited and photographed like the world heritage site, Waverley cemetery. This editing experimentation eventually led to the inclusion of photographs of my watercolour paintings to add more abstraction. I called this work: ‘The Sydney Rona series’. I have since continued the process back in the UK.
