Mt Perry artist awarded

Central and North Burnett Times - - COMMUNITY NOTICEBOARD -

MT PERRY’S Rae Wat­son, whose flo­ral watercolours won grand cham­pion art, is a late bloomer.

“I just love do­ing it – I’ve been paint­ing for the last few years,” Ms Wat­son said.

“You wait til you’re 70 to take up th­ese things.”

A mem­ber of the Mt Perry Fine Art Group, Ms Wat­son said she’d at­tended work­shops to de­velop her skills and had fallen in love with watercolours.

“They reckon it’s the hard­est medium – it’s the flow of it,” she said.

“I’ve started to do larger (paint­ings) and minia­tures.”

Ms Wat­son’s works have fea­tured in the an­nual Mt Perry Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.
