Edith Falls NT (new painting)


This is my first painting for 2017 - Oil on canvas board 24" x 18"
It is the second rendering of this location using a reference photo shot on a visit to the Outback during 2014.
The Black Kite was shot separately nearby, the region abounds with them, it is a wonderful site to see them riding the thermals.



Here's the reference photo. My aim was not to copy the photo literally but to stylize it.

E3 +12-60mm SWD, 1/500 @ f/10 @ iso250

Definitely a big improvement Mark, I like the difference between the flat and the flowing water. Good job.

You are developing a distinctive style that makes you stand out as an artist. I love it!

Nice interpretation of the photo and the actual waterfall.

Well done.

Have you heard of Lister Lister? Reminds me a little of his style.

Thanks David, "interpretatuon" was the word I needed rather than 'rendition'. Interpreting a photo as a painting is always a challenge, just as it is when paintinf direct from nature.

Thanks OM. Water has always fascinated me, it is the giver of life.

Thanks. I must admit that I hadn't heard of him. I looked him up, a 19th century Australian artist, how did you become aware of him?
