Geological influence in painting

Acrylic on Canvas, Sarah Anne Rocks, Tarkine Coast, Tasmania

Geo-artscape, Tarkine of the amazing geology of Sarah Anne Rocks of the Tarkine area, Tasmania’s west coast, is the latest painting from my Easter participation in Tarkine in Motion. The event currently has an incredible selection  of photos on display at the Salerno Gallery in Sydney.
This painting is an acrylic on gallery stretched canvas, using texture media to add to the indication of the sharp edged layers of contorted strata. The lichen crust on these rocks ranges from vivid orange to ochres and greenish white.
This region is exposed to the roaring 40s weather system…. it is wild and raw and a visit is truly invigorating. For artists, scientists and conservationists alike this region is very special.
This artwork captures what I feel from the area.
It is for sale and will be on display at Devonport Regional Art Gallery from Friday 15th May for 3 weeks. Price on request. (size 91cm x 61cm)
