2015 Wynne Prize Entrant

 

This painting was inspired by a photo taken by the avid bird photographer George Adams. Having asked George’s permission to use this image I painted this scene and entered it in the Australian Landscape 2015 Wynne Prize. Having first tackled the background shrubbery the painting was completed in fine layers. This painting took about 5 months to paint.
