NSW fires Acrylic on canvas 30cm x 30cm.
I have continued working on my 30cm x 30cm canvases lately. These are based on the fires in the Inverell area of northern New South Wales. Whilst the people living in the area and the Rural Fire Service were affected the public seemed almost oblivious to the incident. The Rural Fire Service were working around the clock for days in volunteer work that is often not known about by the general public. The fires devastated over 300 hectares of bushland south of Inverell. I will soon go drawing to the blackened areas to see the stark lines of remainding tree skeletons. I think painting a work with form and line but little colour would be interesting. This is one of my latest small canvases
