opposum bay rocks


Out and about observing and photographing rocks around Opposum Bay Tasmania, inspiration for next painting series? This was at the end of a lovely lonely beach,we only met one friendly lady on the walk back. A rocky headland with dried star fish in abundance[some collected for art making] and all these coloured rocks that were nature’s abstract paintings. Digital capture with Lumix DMC FX01 camera, a hand me down from the Other Half.Photography like this is for me essentially an exercise in looking, and note taking rather than an end product.

small portion of a large 1mx1m abstract painting i am working on. i like to create small areas of interest within the whole and plenty of texture. so the painting is “felt” as much as” seen”, which relates to my love of fabrics and past occupation dealing in vintage clothes.
