Painting of the Month

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

oil on canvas  110x90cm

My ‘Sydney Harbour’ painting came about through my need to occasionally depict the world around me objectively rather than inventing paintings from my imagination, as is my usual practice.

The years spent as a student studying the European Renaissance masters was also a factor in this choice of subject.
The immediate foreground in the work is changed from the original scene in order to impart a timeless quality to the bustling atmosphere of the pier and boats.
