CLOUD SWATCHES : preview of paintings for SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS ARTS FESTIVAL 2012 @ CLOUD FARM STUDIOS

These Cloud Swatches are fast, plein air observations…

The vigorous atmospheric conditions on Mt Murray are astonishing.

Its a combination of being high up on an escarpment and pushed hard against a coastal plain.

One can actually observe clouds coming into form, just appearing at eye level, out in the vista due to two different air currents colliding.

These paintings are a reaction to the increasing amount of work I do in front of a computer . 

In a communication I had recently with painter Enrique del Val I wrote :

“I have gone in a very large arc with my work. I started as a painter,went into photography,then film, then digital.

I find digital media interesting but I do so much of it, that this year ive gone back to the paints… Its a beautiful place to be “

These works are a celebration of my environment and a return to a medium that I have been sorely missing.
