Mr. Platypus

Description : I was asked to recreate my Platypus painting. My client asked if I could change the background to represent The Murray River. I asked why? She went on to say her and her family own a property on the Murray River where they have daily visits from platypuses. I was so excited to paint this for her. I found that it was really challenging as this was the first time that I have painted water, with ripples. To paint the water to look like the murky Murray River which has so many colours in it other than murky brown and green. Most of all I loved how this painting turned out and how its on its way to its new home on the banks of the mighty Murray River.

     Catherine Barolo is a self taught artist living in Melbourne, Australia.  

Catherine has been drawing ever since she was little.  A quiet child who would draw for hours and hours escaping life in the 1970's suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.

     Her paintings and stories were full of fairies, goblins and all types of animals, flowers and mythical creatures she would make up from her fantasy world she loved and imagined happened!


      Fast forward to 2022 and Catherine is happily married with 4 almost grown children and her dog Coco.  It has only been in the last two years Catherine has found time to concentrate on her art.  Catherine is a self taught artist and has exhibited her work in Melbourne and continues to sell her original paintings, prints and commissioned art through her website.  Catherine either works off her own photos or asks photographers permission to use their photos as reference.  Catherine loves to paint in acrylic and now teaching herself to paint digitally.  Each painting is carefully thought and planned out, subject, colour and composition to tell its unique story all in as much detail as she can.
