Melaleuca, Original Watercolour by Ryn Shell
The mount board is off-white. It looks cold, bluish, in this image, which shows that the colour of this photo needs some adjustment to warm it. This artwork is one I painted of melaleuca, or the common seaside teatree bush. My husband Reg created a beautiful triple mounting to enhance the artwork. Being unframed, it is suitable for postage/shipping, although works of this size can be an expensive proposition to send through the mail. I can deliver it to Narre Warren (never at short notice) for early collection there, by appointment only. I travel to Narree Warren less than half a dozen times a year, but that would be the most convenient location for clients from Victoria to collect my work. Pack and Send handle my distance and International original artwork orders.
Close up view. I started painting this while my hesband Reg played a round of golf at the Portsea Golf Course. Then I returned to the studio to complete it. Another favourite that has been in my personal collection for years.
Australian Wildflower Watercolour Painting by Kathy Shell.
I love this work. It is painted on a heavy weight, textured watercolour paper. I've added some pen and ink work to the transparent wareccolours. Tey sprey of flowers are warratah, flannel flowers, wattle and brown boronia. All of my favorites. This one was a joy to paint. It looks better below, with the raw edges of the paper hidden.
And a close-up image.
In this photo, you can see the gold ink that I've incorporated into the watercolour panting on the edges of the waratah flower.
Thank you to my proofreader Grant Leishman.
