Using My travel Images
On our recent Queensland month caravan holiday we took between my husband and I quite a number of images. I photographed some unusual things never knowing where they might come in handy. Our first stop from leaving home was at Loxton in the Riverland of South Australia where there is a fabulous historical village filled with much memorabilia. There were a few pegboards with lots of taps attached and I used one of these in this painting. I started with no drawing just intrigued whether I could get an old feel to the brass. Feeling pleased I thought how about adding a bird on top but I had not left enough room and this can happen when going straight in with paint and not a lot of planning. Not giving up I added some old pipe and then looked through Ian's images as I knew he captured a lovely Blue Wren skitting around on the ground when we visited Dubbo Zoo a week later.The background was designed last.
