Description

The Timbertown bullock train in Wauchope N.S.W provided me with the inspiration for this painting, and it is an artwork that can blend beautifully with a variety of colour schemes in your home.

RGB (red, green, and blue) is a colour system used by computers and when they are combined in different ratios provide a rainbow of colours. This painting is from my grey tone series where a majority of the painting is done in greys, black and pale iridescent white. The key subjects are highlighted in colour.

The bullock’s yokes are purposely painted in yellow and symbolise bringing the hard work of the RGB bullocks forward into the digital age. Timbertown celebrates its 40th year in operation in 2017 and the B&W photograph taken by me was taken 39 years ago long before we could imagine how important RGB would be to digital photography.
