The frustrating thing about painting photorealistic landscapes is that it is extremely difficult. This painting I rushed finishing because it had to be framed in time for the Yarra Glen art show.

  • I painted the clouds with my fingers. And they don’t look quite right.
  • Yarra Glen is such a beautiful pace. Hopefully I will eventually be able to it justice with a photorealist painting.
  • The fence was the asiest thing to paint. And yet it looks the best.


Dimensions: 90x60cm.
Painted: 2015.
Materials: Acrylic on MDF board.

It is sold framed behind glass.
Availability: For sale $475.

Although this painting is to be sold unframed this is what it could look like. It is shown for a better understanding of its size and presence.
