Artwork Description

Mixed Media on paper

Signed on the front.

This expressive mixed media painting is from a small series of works adapted from my holiday sketchbook. We were lucky to get away to the Mid North NSW Coast for a week during the school hols and since it was raining I spent most of the trip on the balcony drinking wine and sketching the tropical gardens below. (Dream holiday for me - not so much for my kids).

Now I'm back in the studio I wanted to try to capture the raw energy of those small water logged and wine stained sketches at a larger scale. This layered work includes bits of paper collage as well as gestural marks with charcoal, and watercolour washes. Painted on to extra thick 650gsm textured watercolour paper (so there is no crinkling of the paper).

The last image features another painting from this series same size - also for sale on Bluethumb "Holidays Gardens #3" I thought they looked good hung as a pair.
