Orange Orchard is a mixed media artwork on canvas material has been used and impasto gel, I have also etched into the work and some sanding has been done to create texture. I have mainly used acrylic paint although I have used pastel as well, the painting also continues around the edges. Art is inspired by the area I live in which is the hills of Perth in Bickley Kalamunda. The Bickley Valley has many orchards and wineries that have been established and is now quite a hub of activity especially in spring and summer with now about 10 established winery’s, accomodation, and many orchards with fruit a plenty. A lot of the orchards still have the rusty old feel about them hence the wooden gate.Work is presented in a bold abstract Naive style and has textured appearance and a satin finish.
