Since posting this I have painted in a resting figure on the side of the path - I should update the image! :)

i dont know why but i always feel uncomfortable asking a talented artist how he did a certain piece. its like asking a magician how he does his magic tricks. so i wont ask but i would love to know what medium you used? amazing stuff :D

This painting as you see it is acrylic on stretched linen. It was done after visiting Springbrook in the Gold Coast hinterland. At the southern end of the plateau is a lookout near a stand of Antarctic Beech trees. I did this painting to describe how I felt about the place, relying on my memory and imagination rather than actual physical landmarks. I just started painting, and let it develop in it's own time and take it's own course.
I exhibited the painting recently, but just before I did, I included an unobtrusive figure in the foreground, a barefoot traveller with a swag, sitting in the shadows by the side of the path, looking into the distance. It just seemed to fit somehow. If I have an updated photo I will post it.
Anyway, I showed the painting and it sold, which I was very happy about!
Thanks for your interest :)

Yes I'd love to see the final version if it's no bother. and thanks, now that I know this was entirely done with acrylic I have even more respect for it :)

Man this is fantastic. Great color palette and that brighter spotlights here or there, oh!, and the far forest on right and left.
I'm in endless debt to you for those inspiring works.
