Embracing the goal to create landscapes from the Great Ocean Road and Otways I felt what better way to start than the 12 Apostles. Recognised world wide, this group of sea stacks lined up along this limestone coast had my creative mind a buzz. Using a colour palette similar to previous works in this style I hope you enjoy my unique take on this landscape.
Being such a prominent location I wanted to include the many perspectives along this coastline as I could. True to my intuitive style, may markings are made spontaneously and I find this far more important to preserve in the final piece than accuracy. My skies are 100% spontaneous and what I feel is appropriate for the artwork. Colour choices for the Apostles themselves are to highlight them as a key feature. The vegetation has a general likeness to the photos that inspire the artworks. Finding a playfulness with the colour and shapes here are a must for me to create with freedom.
The 12 Apostle series shows an array of colours from, aqua blues, grey/blue, teal, grey, grey/green, olive green, blush pink, mustard, peach, apricot, purple and magenta. You will find more earthy tones mixed in with ochres and chocolate browns to give balance to the vibrant tones.
