PAINTING 17.


Today’s post features the 17th painting that I have completed for my exhibition next March at the Providore Mill & Gallery in Launceston.

I have included a step-by-step account of its development.

At 60 x 40 cm, using Prismacolors on pastel board it took the best part of 3 days to complete.

The rocks in question are from Hervey Bay and I aim to complete at least 2 more paintings from that area.

The highlight (for me) of this composition is the large rock at the top. I love the way it casts a shadow over the smaller rocks below.

The amount of flesh colours in some of the rocks there, contrast beautifully with the chunky bluestone examples that are mainly used in retaining walls to stop the sea from eroding more of the coastline.

Better get back to work!
