MEANDERING EXHIBITION ENTRY 2011


This is my entry in the Meandering exhibition, landscape section…. an exhibition at Launceston Country Club of paintings of Meander Valley in Northern Tasmania. This view of Meander Falls with gushing water has the sense of energy for which I was aiming. It is essentially a traditional watercolour using a very wet technique on Fabriano Torchon extra rough paper. The paper is wonderful for creating interesting textural effects due to its unnusual rough surface. Being very soft it is a bit tricky to work on but well worth the effort. Beyond the pure representational in this watercolour, the rock wall symbolises the solid foundations needed to build a strong community while the flowing water represents the dynamicism of change

.  I will conduct a morning workshop on working with this paper on Thursday February 11th at my studio at Forth. Cost $20. Time 10a.m. to 12.30. ph 0419282673

    Even just to be able to watch you and listen to you is worth coming along for me. I’ll let you know as soon as i hear from him.
