Art Description

Drawing: Gouache, Watercolor and Marker on Paper.

The artwork is framed. It has a floating mount in a natural Tasmanian Oak box frame. Total dimension with frame is: 71cm x 91cm x 3.5cm

The Australian Raven is a majestic and mysterious creature. Glossy black feathers, powerfully elegant wings and captivating green eyes. Hidden amongst the grey green leaves of the Banksia tree, the Raven stills watching people go by.

Interactions in nature can be fleeting, such small movements usually go unseen. But all these movements, however long or short, are part of the fabric of the Australian environment.

Wether in the bush or in the city, I wanted to capture these interactions. A quiet moment, with the potential to lead to something dramatic or perhaps the calm after the storm. This is a moment of a story, and a story within itself. It's the moment a Raven decided to stop amongst some Banksia leaves.

Painted with gouache, watercolours and finished with pigment markers. I wanted to bring light to such stories, to create a moment of quiet contemplation, either a prelude or an epilogue.
