In Michael Winter's class we were to make a drawing in the style of Russell Drysdale, a famous Australian painter, and then paint it large in acrylic or oil. I tried using mainly warm colours as he did and put items that are quite different close by with a tiny object out of scale. The natural feature is from a photo of an erosion feature at Mungo Nat. Park. The structure is an old hut on the High Plainsof NSW.
This is the acrylic painting (100 x 80 cm) from the pencil drawing above - with a few changes. I doubt that Drydale would recognise his so-called style, but I enjoyed doing it anyway!
