I have done my first seascape in watercolour.
It’s of a bay at Rottnest Island that is an island 18km off the coast of where I live. You can see it from the coast and when on Rottnest, you can see the city in the distance.
It’s famous for beautiful calm bays and very famous for the little creatures who live there.
They are called Quokkas and people from all over the world go to Rottnest to take “selfies” with these very tame and cute creatures. Lately, Roger Federer and Chris Hemsworth are among the many who have published their photos.
I painted a little Quokka to go with my “Rotto” (which is what we affectionately call the island) theme.
