This was inspired by one of our walks with friends in Bradley’s Head, which we reached with the ferry across the bay from Sydney’s Circular Quay.
The sinewiness of the Australian Eucalypts suggests a characteristic wildness and spontaneity of the Australian landscape (or urbanscape). Within these wildness, it offers spaces of respite from Sydney city’s hustle and bustle.
The drawing was worked using alternating layers of pencil, Indian ink, wax, watercolour, and oil pastels.
I’m currently still working on a few more iterations, based on different materials, to express the ‘wildness’ of the atmosphere. So stay tuned for more updates!
