Additional Information

 

Diamond Bay is part of the Copeton Dam Lakes area near Inverell NSW.  It has an interesting history whereby a whole town and surrounding lands were submerged in the 70’s to make way for a dam to service large areas of agricultural land.  At the time I painted Diamond Bay, the land was in drought and the water capacity was only at 30%.  This created the most spectacular scenes where these incredible granite tors where left perched high and dry and the once submerged trees now eerily piercing the water’s surface with their stark bare limbs.

Within the painting in the stillness of early dawn, the vermillion rays reflect off the pale boulders into the milky water, only to be interrupted by the occasional punctuation of the slender black branches.

To do justice to the scene it seemed appropriate to use water based paints such as gouache and ink, but to represent the graphic nature of the trees and rocks I applied mark making tools of charcoal and pastel.
