Formerly “Belah”

"Exterior with Loading Ramp" 2019 watercolour 76x26cm Sold

Paintings about the shearing shed, and other buildings, at “Bundanoon” Texas, formerly “Belah”.

These paintings were created from a series of photos and quick sketches made in May 2018, which were then completed in my studio in Lismore.

Photographing artwork. Ideally the paintings would all be photographed in controlled studio conditions. This has not happened with this series, which were photographed over several days as they were completed. Consequently some have a blue cast and some an orange. I’m happy to send you other files of any painting, if you’d like. And if you do end up with an artwork that is too different from what you anticipated I’m happy to accept it back.

To Purchase an Artwork

Some of these works have sold, some are in the exhibition The Working Shed at The Gympie Regional Gallery in Qld until April 24. Contact Christine directly by phone or email here for more information about any painting.

Prices. $350 -$3500 depending on the size, framed state and exhibition situation.

Small Paintings

At the beginning of a project I start working with very small paintings. This gives me a chance to investigate what is really there. Every shed is different, and I’ve learnt that if I throw myself into the major works too soon, I make mistakes. Many in this first series are 10x10cm, some a little larger.

A Standard Size – 20x20cm 

This is a size that I enjoy working to. It frames up nicely and it’s both big and small enough to live domestically and in a gallery situation. I start most paintings to fit this size, though not every one stays that way – sometimes the work expands beyond the original plan. Some of these works are 16.5×16.5cm 

Randomly Sized and Larger Works

Most watercolour paper is 76x56cm. Several of these paintings are as long as is possible, and some as high.
