The Exhibition – The Last Post

July 1, 2012 § Leave a comment

To get closure on The Exhibition that Emily Hill recently completed, it was decided to display here for the viewing audience, a slideshow of the pieces that unfortunately did not get sold during the showing, but are fortunately now available for purchase through this blog.  So if you like any of the watercolours below, then leave a message and we will get in touch, will let you know sizes and costs, framed and un-framed…. you may notice a fairly distinct theme in the collection below.

This also frees up Emily to start working hard on her next project to which a few previews may grace these pages.

Reflective Teatime

The Exhibition was a huge success for both Emily Hill and the hosting Art Gallery, it was great to see such a positive and warm response to the Artwork on show.  Emily sincerely thanks all that visited and all whom purchased a piece or two for their own Art collections.

There are still a few pieces which didn’t sell and these will be available through this website, please leave a message and I am sure we can work something out.

Here is a Silver Teapot that Emily acquired just prior to the exhibition from a Watercolour friend and subsequently ended up as part of the whole experience.

Red Emperor and Garlic

Food as a still life is a common theme, and Emily Hill has incorporated that into many of her recent pieces that make up her current exhibition.  Food and cooking is a passion for Emily and it would seem a logical subject matter when compiling work for this show.  Here we see a Red Emperor fish upon the cutting board with a mix of flavours ready on hand; garlic, chiles and spring onions.

Swimmer Crabs and Lantern

June 2, 2012 § 4 Comments

As a young girl, Emily Hill noticed the watercolours that her father had painted and were sometimes around the house.  When the viewer looks into this painting, one can see a moment in time in Emily’s past; the Blue Swimmer Crabs of St Vincent’s Gulf, the earthy warmth to the colours here and also the Hurricane Lamp.  Which ties in nicely to Emily’s current location of Cyclone-prone North Queensland.

This piece sold during the recent exhibition and the lucky new owner has more then just a watercolour, they have a tale of Emily and her story.

Prawns and Gods

When asked what Emily Hill’s favourite watercolour painting was of the recent Exhibition and this still life gets a mention.  The Star Anise and Cinnamon show a little insight into Emily and her love of cooking and fine eating.  The Prawns are just typical of life in the Tropics, and are a common staple, especially when Coconut is involved.

Tea Cups with Spoons.

The Exhibition opening held by watercolour artist Emily Hill and photographer Jason Daniels was a great success with many of the pieces selling and earning a coveted prized red dot.  It was of interest to note which pieces drew the most attention and also those that were silently viewed from afar.


Previously this blog has offered previews of each of the paintings, but now in a series, the full image will appear and while many of the paintings are sold.  A few are still available at the Gallery for purchase.  Here we find a stack of delicate tea cups perilously posed and delicately painted.  This drew a great deal of positive appreciation from the attendees and was one of the pieces that sold.


Beach Debris

This is what started tomorrow’s Exhibition.  Some time ago in Papua New Guinea, Emily Hill painted a watercolour and entered it into the Luk Save Art Show, PNG’s premier display of all things beautiful that is art in such a tribal country.

Emily’s entry was a watercolour of local shells and Red Emperor fish.  This was purchased by a man we shall call Dominic who then decided to host a dinner in honour of the artist and the painting.  A great night was had by all.

Later when Emily returned to Australia, another still life of beach flotsam and jetsam was painted and Dominic was privy to a viewing.  His comment simply was; “Exhibit this painting, build an exhibition around it and I will buy it”.

The Still Life Exhibition was born.  Here is that painting.

Where Am I?
