I had the most awesome time yesterday
I painted and created until late afternoon and I finished 2 paintings and completed the redo of the other one.......
What a wonderful day of creativity (and now doesn't my creative space need a thorough clean up!!)
But before I get my cleaning rags ready here they are!
Moonrise over St Mary's (Tasmania)
This is a wide narrow piece which is inspired by a photo that I took at Moonrise watching the way the moon glimmered on the leaves.
I love the way the reflections light up the countryside and then glow out to see beyond.
It is for a wedding present for someone who loves purple above any other colour and as you know it isn't easy to do purple in landscapes so much..... so when I came across a photo of this sunset I took in Tassie - I thought of her!
Now I have the pleasure of knowing that I can enjoy it until her wedding!
This is a huge piece 75cm x 100cm of the amazing Echo Point and the 3 sisters in the Blue Mountains NSW. I really wanted to do this painting for a while but as this is an 'iconic' subject in Australia I was a little fearful of getting it right.
I am not sure that the photo does it justice, there is so much mystery in the background it is misty blues and greys and lots of texture - loving garnet paste at the moment !!
So much fun to do
Glow over the Bungles Bungles
Ever done something you were really not happy with?????
Well this is one of 'those'
It is a hard piece - and it didn't have the impact I thought it could..... the colours were off, the cones looked as though they were too smooth and it just felt odd.
So I am now okay with it - it isn't my fave painting but I think I like to so much better than before...... BTW - these colours are pretty real to life just in case you thought I was in some psychedelic dream!!
This is a growing thing isn't it - I am getting better every month - and Thank You for your support as I keep going on this mixed media journey
