Colour Research

I have been archiving all my images and looking into colour combinations used in nature for my paintings. In the process I have come across some great images and colours.

June in Four Visual Weeks

Week 4
Oil painting and Kandinsky colour theory studies. Here are some of his works that I really like. A visit to MacClelland Sculpture park was interesting - all a bit too modern for my tastes but a nice day out.

Week 3

I have been playing with the images I took last week as a part of my research for next semester involving colour and pattern in nature.

Week 2

Visied Inverloch on our way to Phillip Island, Lovely coastal stretch. I took lots of photos. The water was very still with beautiful reflections.

Week 1

We took some drives to the Prom and into the Strezlecki's. Lovely views until we reached the arae devastated by the Callignee fires. Still barren as the moon. In the Tarra Bulga we saw several Lyrebirds, which was a treat.
