Around Bright, Victoria, Australia
What an effort this has become... I started painting the beautiful scene from Robyn Lovelocks Photo (PmP). I sort of botched the beginning so I took it under the shower and started again. Did not realise that in the process, the paper lost its sizing and the washes just soaked in. I needed to get some variety in the red earth rocky embankment , which was out of question the way the paper behaved, so I experimented with Texture medium & managed to sort of salvage it....
...Bright is a town in northeastern Victoria, Australia.
It has a rich cultural heritage and many locations within the town along with street names can be traced to present day residents. The surrounds were part of the goldrush fever.
