Winner Fleurieu Vistas Acquisitive Prize of $10,000
I did this painting specifically for the $10,000 'Fleurieu Vistas' prize and won!
The hills are part of the Mount Lofty Ranges, dropping down precipitously alongside the Old Willunga Hill Road. The background, more easily seen from the new Willunga Hill Road, stretches away across vineyards and subdivisions to the coastline.
The tree trunks and dog pull the foreground right up to the roadside, while the wire fence ties it all together.
