Summer's End, handmade watercolours on Fabriano watercolour paper, 45 x 38 cm,
© Matteo Grilli.
I painted most of this watercolour while demonstrating at the Logan Art Gallery during my last exhibition. A the end of summer, Chestnut-breasted Mannikins gather in large groups including all the young birds. I saw this family of five at Sandy Camp Road park on the eastern Brisbane suburb of Wynnum North.
This video shows how I make my handmade watercolour paints, I hope you enjoy:
