Here the exploration revolved around breaking free of the conventional realistic landscape palette(as I perceived it to be) and following a bit of a “Fauvist” path.
The first of these pictures are based on a photo of the little creek that flows through the grounds of The Armidale School.
The next series uses a depiction of one of the dams on our farm.
The paint was applied using a palette knife. My photography has improved since then!!
