Around A River

Original Painting by Ken Rasmussen

Dimensions 915 × 1220 mm

Oil on Canvas

In this painting you can see Nedlands and the University of WA, and in the background Perth city. Claremont is over on the left, and you can see Keanes Point and Peppermint Grove Beach.

I painted this during a time when I had obsession with pale paintings. I had intended to strip the colour right back, and I even started to do that.

At that point, I stopped myself. This colour is enjoyable and spontaneous and fun, why should I take it away?

The painting was just so nice that I couldn’t bring myself to do it.  I just wanted it to stay bright and colourful.

It reflects my affection for these places and the colours of the water and sky.
