It’s been an unbelievably busy fortnight, with the full spectrum of spacecraft projects finally finishing the working life of the backing cloth on the 7m print table. There’s been much anticipation about the upcoming paintings and this final wave of projects resulted in some spectacular compositions and perhaps a wider range of colour than usual.
Projects, such as the studies for a carpet using a direct exposure of a flowering banksia ( from the studio garden ) and a marco photograph of a Grevillea as the starting point. Other motifs to work their way to the surface include the treasury building in Melbourne, beach architecture, over sized race numbers and more circle work.
Also new in store for the weekend are these two botanical paintings, very delicate and lacy. We’ve really enjoyed working on the silver foil, though silver is so hard to photograph you’ll just have exept that all the secrets can’t be reavealed in a blog.
