These are some of the works that were painted on site or have been evolving since my visit to Tasmania’s Tarkine Coast over Easter. More to come. Working on a larger acrylic using texture medium because I love the texture of the rocks there, but I am out of white and so is my supplier!. Frustration! I have to wait for an order from another supplier to arrive…. can get other brands but I likeAtelier Interactive.
The lichen on the rocks is amazing. this is a mm work using oil resists with watercolour and ink on rough paper to refelct the coarse textures of the subject.
Metamorphosed strata protrude from sand and surf
Painted quickly on site on a bright but overcast day. The rough Langton paper helped with suggesting the pebbled shore
The first work painted on site… watercolour and sumi ink…. setting the mood and getting into the flow. Sitting in this location grinding ink on a stone and letting watercolour float over the paper’s surface is so meditative.
