Backpackers’ Building, Glenelg


Backpackers’ Building, Glenelg
72.5 cm x 45.5 cm, oil paints on paper on board.
Date produced: 1988 - 1992, while living at Glenelg (1988-1992).

Painted entirely on-site, at Glenelg, S.A. This building looked superb when it was illuminated by mid-to-late-afternoon sunshine. I tried to concentrate on the light and tones by using a monochromatic palette of white with Burnt Sienna. I found the warm sepia type colouring to fit in well with the ‘historic’ nature of the building and with Glenelg itself.
