Oil on Panel
This painting was created as part of a 31 Day Painting Challenge in January. This is Gillies Rd again (same place as day 21) but this time I met Daryl who owns this paddock. He told me that in the height of the drought he worked 5 hours a day to cut grass on his neighbour’s block with a scathe and carry it by bucket to his cows. He also bucketed water as the creek had dried up. Daryl looked to be in his 60’s and had lived here 50 years. He looked fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been in my life!
This work is painted in oil paints on panel, plein air on location and finished with a light varnish. This painting need a frame to be hung, but has been painted in a size for common premade frames.
Plein air paintings have a lovely loose energy and bold brush strokes due to the speed in which they are painted on location. This does also mean that occasionally they suffer small imperfections like a bug or finger print in the paint.
Paintings are photographed in natural light to represent colours as accurately as possible.
