Since posting this I have painted in a resting figure on the side of the path - I should update the image! :)

this is one of the most beautiful galleries here and this applies to every art work piece presented here.
This art deserves many compliments and honour.

i dont know why but i always feel uncomfortable asking a talented artist how he did a certain piece. its like asking a magician how he does his magic tricks. so i wont ask but i would love to know what medium you used? amazing stuff :D

This painting as you see it is acrylic on stretched linen. It was done after visiting Springbrook in the Gold Coast hinterland. At the southern end of the plateau is a lookout near a stand of Antarctic Beech trees. I did this painting to describe how I felt about the place, relying on my memory and imagination rather than actual physical landmarks. I just started painting, and let it develop in it's own time and take it's own course.
I exhibited the painting recently, but just before I did, I included an unobtrusive figure in the foreground, a barefoot traveller with a swag, sitting in the shadows by the side of the path, looking into the distance. It just seemed to fit somehow. If I have an updated photo I will post it.
Anyway, I showed the painting and it sold, which I was very happy about!
Thanks for your interest :)

Yes I'd love to see the final version if it's no bother. and thanks, now that I know this was entirely done with acrylic I have even more respect for it :)
