Backwaters fascinate me.

This is where all manner objects gather, move with the current and then disappear downstream.

A couple of years ago I drew a backwater in Launceston’s Cataract Gorge that ended up in one of my folders. The Gorge would have to be one of the most beautiful and accessible places in the world. You may think that to be a gross over-statement. The local inhabitants and visitors will no doubt agree with me.

The other day I ‘retrieved’ the drawing in question and thought that it needed more attention. So I got to work and the (finally) finished product is displayed, with the ‘earlier’ drawing below. I have included a detail of what I consider the most interesting part of the drawing.

I doesn’t hurt to put your ‘finished’ work away and look at it at a later date. One look should tell you if it is finished or not.

  2. Thank you for commenting Tomas. Backwaters are very mysterious at times, and offer much to the imagination.
    I am enjoying your blog, keep up the good work!

  3. Wow, what a difference, the updated version has zing. I love the detail picture, so abstract compared to the full piece. I too have reworked past art and I am always amazed at how much I have moved on since I last called the work ‘complete’. Congratulations on the drawing prize too.

  4. Wow…
    You must be appreciated for your Wonderful thought…

  5. one can argue that it can go both ways
