About the Artist

Geraldine commenced watercolour painting in 2013.  She has developed and honed her skills through regular classes, workshops with renowned watercolour artists, daily practice in her studio and plein air locations in and around Perth.

Her work has been shown at various group exhibitions, including, the Western Australian Society of Arts, the Watercolour Society of WA, Tresillian Arts Centre and Ellis House.

In 2019 she was awarded The John Hadlow Plein Air Prize at the Watercolour Society’s Annual Exhibition.

More recently in 2020, she was awarded The West Australian Society of Arts Lawrie Bennett Award for En Plein Air Painting.

She is a foundation member of En Plein Air Perth artists, and paints each week somewhere around Perth and beyond.  Whether inner city, riverbank, port, seaside, outback, countryside and farm, the sight of a plein air artist will initiate a conversation – and a connection.  This is the transformative nature of en plein air watercolour.

Geraldine’s membership of the Watercolour Society of WA provides a network of dedicated artists and a firm link to current developments in the field here and abroad.

You can see more of her work on Instagram.

The Olive Grower and His Mate

$390

28.5cm x 38cm – Matted & Unframed

I spent some time with this gentleman on the Island of Thassos in Greece, while on an overland journey from the UK to India in 1971.  He and his wife were harvesting their olives from trees which were growing on the steep, terraced hillside. His gentle face and obvious fondness for his dog are what I am endeavouring to capture in this work.

At the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary

$420

31cm x 47.5cm – Framed

The wonderful work of Eric Singleton is acknowledged in the naming of this splendid wildlife area along the Derbal Yerrigan/Swan River in Perth.  This little bridge is one of the quaintest modern bridges I have seen around the City, so I was pleased to paint here beside the creek.

Cirque d’Soleil Comes to Belmont

While cycling along the bike path near the Belmont Race Course, I noticed these intriguing tent tops peeking over the long grasses. They brought a sense of the Medieval to the location. Just had to paint them!

How long will they last?

$380

28.5cm x 38cm – Matted & Unframed

While staying up at Hillside Retreat in York I discovered this wonderful shed full of items more commonly known to other generations. These lasts provided such interesting shapes and a reminder of the craft of the bootmakers.
