Anzac Cove, Bombardment

Acrylic on Canvas

81 x 198cm


While painting ‘Anzac Cove, Bombardment’, which began as an abstract exploration of colour and texture effects, I was fully immersed in the process, just following my intuitions.

Then as it reached completion, I started to see a powerful night-time sea and landscape, evocative of a wartime bombardment, both beautiful and terrifying.
