La Perouse Ink Path

La Perouse Ink Path
Chinese Ink and Paint on Rice Paper
42cm x 65cm

This pathway runs parallel to the coast of Botany Bay and is set within the urban suburb of La Perouse. Yet , at times the density of the forest removes all of these geographical associations for a moment so that the pathway could be anywhere in the bush. I enjoy these spaces in the city where I can feel emersed in 'nature'.

This piece on rice paper, a wonderful translucent surface, and as I am learning a less robust one. In the centre of the painting you may notice a hole where you can see my ink covered drawing board.

  2. Thanks Lee. The shadows created a linear pattern on the path that emphasised the lines of the branches into a visual vortex mass. I think I would have continued adding to the lines if the paper had not started ripping.
