You see the water lilies that float on Margaret River. Under the surface you discover strong roots, beautiful pinks and ruby shades of water – these are the hidden colours and connections that feed, nurture and give stability. From the outside, you can never see where the energy for life really comes from.

I’m really pleased with this painting. It is about driving through the town of Margaret River in the very early morning when it’s still dark. You see the buildings stand out like cards in the headlights. The water lilies are luminous and seemingly float above the painting. I’m using two blues, cyanine and ultramarine. When combined like this the blues interact with each other in changing ways. Sometimes the ultramarine will look like violet and sometimes the pthalo will look like green. It’s a way of trying to depict light levels so low that you can’t really tell what the colours are. You can’t see the trees in the darkness but at certain angles, they show up as lines and then disappear back into the painting.

Margaret River is such a beautiful little place tucked away in the forest. It’s one of my favourite places to paint because of the river, the trees, the birds and the water lilies. It casts a spell and time slows down for you.
