This painting is a new technique that I have been working on for nine months - kind of like having a baby! The paint is watercolour and oil, sometimes applied at the same time. The soft dreamy blending of watercolour washes is off set by crisp sharp lines; some of the oil paint is silver and reflects the viewer when you are standing in front, so if you are wearing dark blue, this colour is added to the painting, likewise pinks, greens etc.The piece is on a gallery style stretched canvas and sealed, so that no frame is required and is ready to hang. I love working with Australian trees and the light in the early morning and evening.
