Introducing Robyn Sinclair

I've always loved to walk....
Trekking in Kashmir - 1980s

and to draw.....
Sketching in the garden with my Muse

Just over a year ago Sketchercise brought the two passions together.

As an Australian writer and producer of television drama I'd always had the itch to paint but seldom the time even to scratch. That, I left to my Muse.

Since 2005, I have been living with my husband and our dogs in an old Tuscan hill town. I finally have the time to focus on my art. It is impossible to live here and not be influenced by Italian art and landscape.

The search for my own style has taken me down many paths, all of them absorbing and exciting. My main focus is watercolour and gouache but I am fortunate to have access to a local printmaking studio and an oil painting group. I've been blogging about all of these activities for over five years.

Sketchercise finally drove me out of the studio and into the countryside where I discovered the pleasure of making little watercolour sketches along the way.


Then I thought what fun it would be to exchange these as postcards.

Thanks, Ronell. I hope by the time we are exchanging postcards there will be some Tuscan sun.

I'm not so intrepid as you, painting outside in all weather.

It is wonderful to paint and draw in the special atmosphere of the tuscany country, small towns and cities. Tuscany was the first place I've visit when I was young. And it is still the favorite. Your great watercolors makes me taking the car. Right now..

It's too bad the square format you often use is not well suited to postcards! I hope you've had some of these exquisite paintings made into note cards...
