Title:    “Australian Sunburst, Grass Tree”

 

Painting Description & Insights

This Australian Grass Tree silhouette was the natural progression after venturing into the deserts of America with U2. I completed the painting “In the Hands of Love, Joshua Tree” and felt it was time to come back to Australia. I needed to paint our own living symbol of resilience.

 

Epitomising the Australian landscape, Grass Trees are uniquely beautiful and thrive in adverse conditions. Incredibly, they flower after facing a trial by fire.

 

Strength to aspire to!

 

I used lots of texture in the stem and leaves to capture and convey the Grass Tree’s  beauty. The ends of some leaves are rubbed with just a hint of metallic gold to reflect the setting Australian sun.

 

View the close up photos below to see the texture from different angles.

 

The initial impression of simplicity serves to highlight the negative space, contrasting it with the positive.

 

Contrary to the name, negative space provides you with a sense of peace. It is the space surrounding the painting’s subject matter e.g. the sunset surrounding the Grass Tree.
