Kerri Redding - tropart

Native Hibiscus and Jugs
I was told my first sentence was “pretty little flower”. So it’s not surprising when I started to paint that plants were the focus of my attention.
Spending a lot of time on the coast I focused a lot on coconuts and other tropical beach vegetation. Now I live on the banks of the Baron river I’m concentrating more on dry country and local plants.
If I’m after that tropical look I can always go to my house garden. Originally I started painting in acrylics but over the last couple years I’ve moved to watercolours. I find the watercolours very challenging but I like the fact you can stop and start easily and also it’s an easy cleanup.
