Hills, Wreck and Dog
107 x 122 cms 2004
This is the second of the 3 paintings I did from the wrecker's yard photos.
I wanted to use the local hills as they meet the flat plain again, but felt I needed to pull everything down and across into a dominant vertical post in the left corner, while the car is up and further away, not significant. The sign stops and balances that side of the composition which would otherwise have fallen away along the fence line.
**There are more notes on the dog on the Compare Use of Black Dog Page, a comparison of my development in painting the Mount Lofty Ranges on the Compare Hills Page and more wrecker images on the Compare the use of Wrecked Vehicles Page.
