#78 Matilda

Artist: Katka Adams

Artist Statement:
While camping at Girraween National Park I watched enthralled as red wattle birds visited flowering trees beside my tent. The yellow was incredibly vibrant against the soft silvery leaves of the wattle. When I returned to my studio, I tried to capture that moment as a celebration of spring. While working I was swept along as the Matildas won our hearts and stopped the nation, the whole country was united in celebration, of green and gold, and I found my title for this drawing.

Materials and process
This work is made on cold pressed 300gsm Arches paper, made with 100%cotton. It is strong with a beautiful feel and subtle texture.
I used a combination of pastels with coloured pencils on the paper’s surface. The work is float mounted on white matt board under glass, with a white timber frame.
