Kerry Creek (46 x 61 cm)
Soft, pastel colours have been used in this landscape of Kerry Creek. However, some bright yellow-green, that is common to most of the artist’s landscapes, is used to divide the upper section of the painting from the foreground.
Well placed trees frame the meandering creek and they are reflected in the water. The soft tones of the sky in the distance suggest it is a hazy day.
Apart from the soft blending of paint used for the tree trunks and in the creek, the brushwork consists mostly of soft ‘stippling’ (dots) and gentle dabs of paint.
Scenes such as this are common after summer rains.
Acrylic on Masonite, date unknown. (Cleaned and framed. Slight enhancement to creek during restoration.)
