'Bucolic' - Sofala, Orange & the Southern Highlands


This series began in Sofala more than a year ago. Each year is a new location and a new body of work and this year I chose to explore regions where artists such as Brett Whitley, Fred Williams and Russell Drysdale had previously walked . I had their artworks in my mind and I wanted to find the same locations, and sit and paint the same vistas.


Artists always inspire each other and I find the work by other artists past and present captivating. Like a geologist looking for a particular rock, I often search for just one tree that I saw in a painting in a gallery or a book.


I am paying homage to a history of artists that have painted in these regions and to artists that still paint in these regions today.
