At the Billabong near where I live, you could almost imagine you were out in the country.

Here I’ve used acrylics in a watercolour style, applying transparent washes and allowing the white of the paper to show through in parts.

Painting the red tunnel in watercolour proved quite a challenge. The intensity of the red needed quite a high concentration of pigment, but this had to be balanced by the right amount of water.  Too much and it diluted the red, too little and the paint dried before a smooth effect could be achieved.

Just as in a previous portrait, I like the way stripes can help to show form and the drape of clothing.
