Night Painting


Work-in-progress shot of night painting.......again!




This painting wasn't going in the direction I wanted so I covered the figure in Raw umber, Ultramarine blue and a tint of black and then just quickly and lightly wiped back some of the paint to reveal the figure underneath.

so simple, but I think it worked for me this time.

Sir Lionel Arthur Lindsay (1874 - 1961)

there's a lot more information on the artist at the above link..

I found these today and I'm pretty inspired by them.

all the pictures above are from http://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/1709221
(National Library of Australia.)


There's something really honest in these...every single onof these images really makes me remember large chunks of my childhood (it wasn't that long ago) and the first few in particular remind me of Tasmania as it is right now.
