Wetlands Lakes Entrance
Medium: Oil
Year: 2007
Third place - monthly qualifier of McClelland Guild Artists, "Artist of the Year" competition (September 2007)
Oil painting on board, framed with 2 frame inserts. Taken from a photograph by Stephanie Cox with the subject matter simplified to keep the striking effect of the light and colours.
The original photograph this painting is based on was so striking that I couldn't get it out of my head. Although the subject has been simplified the impact has been retained. This painting has received a lot of very positive feedback which I am very proud of. The subject is a little different to my usual style, but I am enjoying going out of my comfort zone to experiment, and with such great results I was going to keep it.
Things however, do change. One of the painting's admirers has made an offer which has been accepted. It is going to a good home where it will have pride of place in a main living area. You never know, I may attempt something similar in the future.
Dimensions: 75 cm (width) × 60 cm (height)
