#94 Byrrill Creek

Artist: Dave Sparkes

Artist Statement:
I am intrigued by sunlight, shadow and reflections, often painting from the “contra jour” (facing into the light) viewpoint, and strive to create an atmospheric mood in his paintings. My painting is a hybrid of impressionism and realism. True reality on two-dimensional paper is impossible, but my attempts at nevertheless trying to achieve that reality – through reconciling the world at large with his own impression of light and form – is the essence of my art.

Materials and process:
Transparent watercolour on Arches 300gm cotton rag paper.

Size: 90cm x 60cm
Price: $1,150
