Following the river upstream from home
Watercolour and Gouache on journal paper

A series of watercolour paintings made on site, following Birrarung (Yarra river) upstream from where I grew up in North Warrandyte. These works look at the diverse ecologies of the river upstream from where I grew up, tracing the impacts of agriculture in the Yarra Valley.
