Tasmania : Lutruwita

When ever I travel I take note of all the elements of the landscape. Texture, line, shape etc. However it is colour that I like to recall the most. Because colour dictates the feel of the landscape, the climate, the season, the wild untouched hills to the farmed pastures.

When I get the chance I like to look back through all the photos I have taken and collate a photo montage of the colours that really resonate with the land so that in time I can use this palette to make decisions when painting. From walking across plains high up in the western parts of Tasmania,(Tarkine region) to Robbins Island then to the east to Binalong Bay or as the local Indigenous people call this land, Larapuna.
