Cliff in the Grampians
This acrylic painting began with a photograph of a landscape and became a semiabstracted one. I was especially interested in shapes, lines. The colours, except for the green, were close on the colour wheel. I'm doing an art class with Michael Winters again this semester and it's called 'Landscape - one step further' to get away from making realistic paintings and putting ones emotions into the painting.
I made this print using soluble wax crayons (Caran d'Arche) to draw the picture onto a piece of polypropylene, then printing on a piece of Arches watercolour paper 185gsm soaked in water for 30 minutes
Sulphur crested cockatoo
These large Australian birds love the seeds on my pistache tree. For the last 2 weeks they have been stripping the tree of seeds and also breaking off branches which is very annoying. They are easy to photograph as they are quite unafraid of people quite close by.
