“Outback-dark and bright”

Here’s the newly complete “Outback-dark and bright”. This painting reflects my road trip experience through western Queensland. The light is clear and bright, even harsh, and the title speaks to this. Outback Queensland is a severe environment, often suffering drought, and the landscape shows this in its’ harsh appearance. I was inspired by the Drummond Range on the western edge of the Central Highlands, as we headed further west to the outback. The contrast in tone and colour highlights the stark landscape.

Painting continues

I’ve been working on 3 paintings of various sizes recently. Here’s an update.

Two new works for Gallery 1

My updated Gallery 1 has two new works, “Outback near Winton”, and “Mountain garden”. Click here to view them in the gallery.

Three new paintings

I’ve been creating some new works from my mountain hideout…today I’m posting 3 small ones. Two paintings have been heavily influenced by my relocation, and the weather conditions experienced with mountain living….when it’s wet, it’s wet! Loving being in an abode with more nature close by though…we have some rainforest remnant on the property. The other painting is more about the iridescent quality of tidal lakes in summer…the shimmering blue energy of that. The mountain works express green-ness and the energy of growth (things grow like lightning up here!), but also the white cloud/mistiness experienced here on the mountain.
