Pink Rocks and Green Ponds

The painting trip to Braidwood fed the painting habit a little more. Rosalie Gascoigne said that she was “visually hungry” and reading an article on David Hockney he got excited about drops in puddles.

I love colour – it’s what the landscape feeds me. For the past 3 years I have had this screen saver from a photo I took down there. It was the colour of this stagnant pond that drew me back. 




From this trip it was the colour of the rocks – that dull fleshy pink. I did some small gouache works and know that these will in turn feed larger works and that from those initial colours, more colours develop.

    • Hi Carla, blue is my nemesis. I struggle to use it freely, it’s just not me. I forced myself once to use only blue and ended up going thru the canvas with a palette knife in absolute frustration. This is a big problem seeing I’m only meters away from the lake- the basis of my next big series of works. Thanks for being a fan. Cheers Sue
