A little bit of Harrietville, Victoria

Howdy all,

I finished up another two paintings.. ie, they were almost finished and had been sitting around for a while so I knocked them over tonight.

They are both of farm land in and around Harrietville, Victoria, a most wonderful part of the world… as long as fire doesn’t get to it of course. These are were painted from photos onto those canvas covered panels. Just small lighting/mood studies really.

I’ve included a short series of wip’s for the second one..

I know it’s a big jump from the one above to the one below.. I didn’t shoot the intervening stages, sorry!

I may have acted too soon here.. the far right bg of the ‘final’ version needs a temp swing back towards the cooler side, like the version before it, AND those strokes need breaking up.. oh well, live and learn. You can see that I signed it last year..

It’s like naming your digital files, matte_painting_FINAL-6.7_Really_final_this_time_v4_revised2_this-IS-IT_DONE.tif.

Never put the word final in your file names or sign your work…Ever!
