This is an oil painting on a custom-made canvas panel. Felt pads have been placed on the back corners to protect your wall and D-rings and wire has been attached making ready to hang. This painting comes with its unique story and a certificate of authenticity.
This is my impression of Dale’s Gorge with evening approaching – the colourful rockface is the main focus.
My paintings are inspired by the beauty of nature. This painting was inspired by a photo I took whilst visiting Dales Gorge in Karijini National Park, Western Australia. It was influenced by David Hockney’s style using colour with a twist of an abstract feel. This has been painted using a palette knife with many layers of paint. Although a decade ago since being there, reading through our diaries and going through our photos of that time, I felt that I was back there … or wishing I was anyway.
This painting tries to capture the utter peace, stillness and expanse experienced sitting in the outback in the middle of nature. The day coming to a close and your mind is starting to rest into peace and stillness, reflecting on the day’s activities. What can you see? What can you smell? What can you hear?
I hope you get a sense of peace deep in your soul when you look at this painting.
Please let me know if you would like to see more photos.
