My 7th pastel painting of Tasmania’s Midlands is a little more detailed than the other 6. I wanted to simplify the composition as much as I could, but I didn’t want to lose the integrity of the area in question.
This is another ‘layered’ landscape, with 3 layers of simplicity underneath 3 layers of varying complexity, like a layer cake (I’m getting hungry).
I’m enjoying this series and I have completed an 8th painting that I shall post on my blog on Monday.
Next week I hope to spend a day touring the Midlands area (again) and take more photos for possible further paintings. I want to enter the Northern Midlands Art Prize next year, and this would be a good opportunity to find that ‘special subject’ for a painting befitting this prestigious award.
In the meantime I need to return to my major exhibition that I’m having next March at the Providore Mill Art Gallery in Launceston. I have a problem that I need to resolve, and it needs attention sooner than later. What is it? I shall post an article next week.
Monday: Beyond the Midlands.
