The story behind Sunrise over Yarra Glen 1

This is a disappointing painting. I painted on an unprepared canvas which was too small. The texture of an unprepared (gesso) canvas doesn’t make painting fine detail easy at all; and this problem plagued me throughout the process of copying the very fine details that are visible in the source image. Compounding this problem was the scale I chose – I used a 50×70 cm canvas instead of 120×180 cm size (which I have now bought two). And in addition I see that the colors are substantially different to the source image. Some of that is due to the process of photography however.

This painting was intended to be entered into the 2020 Wynne Prize but due to circumstances I could not do so.

In future I will paint a series of incredible landscapes from the many photographs I have taken of the Yarra Valley.
