This piece is from my new series of expressive, abstract landscapes, which draw inspiration from the local bushland around my studio near the foot of Mt Coot-tha. Before isolation in March 2020 I walked with my dog daily there and derived such a strong connection with nature. Now that connection feels more important than ever.
My process is to gather information from my trips into nature, taking in the sounds, smells and colours around me and then work from memory back in my studio, aiming to impart the feeling of a place and my experience of being there, more than an exact copy of any part of the scenery. Capturing the energy of a place is my aim.
I continue to work at my painting style which is expressive, with energetic mark making and areas of thick impasto as well as thin washy paint.
This painting is on professional quality canvas, is ready to hang and is UV varnished for protection.
