DJW had a wonderful time teaching a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style 3hr studio session yesterday. So many belly laughs and fascinating to see each persons individual interpretation and colour choices from the same demonstration. Great food, wine and company. ✌🏼♥️🎨

Excited about this new work I started in class today. Expanding on the wet on wet ink on paper technique taught last week. Stepped it up to canvas and added acrylic for one of my signature above/below water compositions but with a twist on colour and medium. Can’t wait to see where this piece ends up! ...

A rare photograph of DJW in his natural habitat🐒🌿... now being dutifully overlooked by a 5m x 1.4m panel commissioned in 1988 (one of 4) for Roma Street Travelodge celebrating the Queensland outback.
This panel of the artwork slowly made its way home, most recently being gifted back to Donald by fellow artist, Kel Nielsen after selling his property. It is now proudly hung from the mezzanine in Don’s new studio like it was painted to fit! Fancy that! ✌🏼❤️🎨 ... See MoreSee Less

Happy birthday Amy! It was a pleasure to create this keepsake for you 💓What an awesome gift idea!
Amy was blown away with this one, I was struggling for a gift idea (I like to be sneaky and innovative) but a quick chat with Donald James Waters OAM sorted that out instantly.
The amazing man created a canvas with Amy as the feature for her 40th birthday celebrations. Then all our beautiful friends personalised it with messages and love.
I am so happy that Don created this for us, but no where near as happy as Amy is right now.
Thank you to all our wonderful friends who came and celebrated with us last night you made the day amazing and we couldn’t be happier to have spent our day with such an amazing bunch of friends we love each and everyone of you thank you for everything you do to make all of our days happy.￼ ...
