VAS - Artist of the Year 2023 - Description of submitted works

Updated: Nov 7, 2023

In May 2023 I embarked on a project to do a painting a day for 356 days. Adding to the challenge, I set myself a limit of around one-hour paint time. Each of the works are in oil and on a 10” x 8” board.

These three works, titled 365 Project Stage 1,2 & 3 stem from this body of work.

Stage 1 shows the initial 10" x 8" work done in 62 minutes on 14 July this year. The view is looking across the rural landscape towards the township of Longford in Tasmania. I used a reference photo which I had taken during my travels.

Stage 2 is a slightly larger studio work with some added detail including the addition of some grazing sheep. For this stage I dispensed with the photo reference and composed the work from the 10 x 8.

Stage 3 is the large (1200 x 900), completed studio painting using only Stage 1 & 2 paintings as reference.
