Often my landscapes will have a touch of this to guide your journey through my painting.
More recently I've been making the figure the undisputed star of the show. The local shearing gang is always a favourite subject of mine, and I can't pretend that this painting "Number 1" is about anything other than Dave!
The other aspect to the human touch is the human hand on the end of the paintbrush . What you see in the final artwork is what I saw, filtered through what I felt and thought about what I saw, the colours that I chose and how I composed the painting.
Lake Station woolshed is over 100 years old - with high windows that let in streams of golden, dusty light.The back part of the shed with the pens is very dark , so in my minds eye I was thinking Rembrandt.
Every one of us sees the world differently and reacts to what we see in a special way. Learn to look and enjoy the unique view which every person has!
PS. if you'd like to watch me painting a figure please come along to my demo at Wall to Wall art, 112 Bridge St,Nelson on friday 13th March 12- 1pm :)
