Inspired by original oil painting on board 18 x 26 inches by J.W. Curtis and dated 1893.
James Waltham Curtis (1839-1901) was an eminent Australian colonial artist whose work lives on as a tribute to Australia’s early days of European settlement. His approach is of technical, poetic and historical interest, emphasizing man’s battle with a primeval landscape and nature, his picturesque landscapes being fine examples of the late 19th century period which preceded the Heidelberg School. Curtis was an English painter and illustrator who it is believed, came to Australia during the Gold Rush. Curtis’ work plays an important part in the preservation of Australian history and is an excellent reminder of how life was in the latter part of the 19th century.
In this painting I decided to create the play of light coming from the left hand side of the painting as at dawn. The small figure in the foreground shows the insignificance of humanity in the natural world.
The painting was painted using brush and palette knife for detail and more structured paint.
