Painting photographs is always a challenge. When the source material is a printed object you have to consider the changes which take place in the printing process. The color gamut isn’t anything near what the human eye or camera can perceive. Then there is the resolution problem.

The story behind Railway Trestle Bridge Near Yarra Glen
This painting is one of a series of small photorealist paintings of Yarra Glen. As you come into Yarra Glen from Lilydale, there are a few of these old railway trestle bridges left from the old Healesville railway line. This one, thankfully, wasn’t burnt down in the recent bushfires that devastated the area.
Like the other small paintings I did from around this time it is painted from a postcard.
