Moseley Square, Glenelg, S.A.


Moseley Square, Glenelg, S.A.
54 cm (w) x 56 cm (h), oil paints on board.
Date produced: 1989

Painted on-site, at Moseley Square, Glenelg, S.A., in about 1989, about a year after the mature Canary Island Palms were brought in and planted into their current positions. The palms did give Moseley Square a different atmosphere.

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 whole Glenelg area.

I was trying to express the impact of sunlight using just tones of the one colour, and also capture something of the square’s unique atmosphere.

At the time I painted this, I was living in a flat above a Pizza restaurant just a few shops to the right of the view. It was a very interesting place to live.

Backpackers’ Building, Glenelg
72.5 cm (w) x 45.5 cm (h), oil paints on paper on board.
Date produced: 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 whole Glenelg area.
