This is the piece I painted on the first day. The rainy day - looking from the shed. What amazed me is that the light mutes the colours and immediately affects my palate. I remember two years ago, arriving at Idalia National Park - west of Blackall -on a rainy day. The same thing happened and this canvas reminds me of that piece.
This is my painting from the White Hill at Bunginderry. This is a small study as you can see. I used it to demonstrate the techniques of painting with found ochres and natural pigments. To my great joy my three students today gave it a go and did really well. I am totally happy with this study and hope to translate it to a much bigger work - possibly a triptych.
