Evening on Sydney Harbour
Brisbane River from Bartleys Point
on the artists easel
Michael Cawdrey - one of our very popular artists specialising in oil paintings. I love the bottom image with the painting "in situ" in other words - sitting on the easel at the artists studio, no longer a work in progress - the finished result. Take a glance across the top image of the Sydney Harbour - the golden glow of the evening light sparkling across the harbour and bouncing off the famous Luna Park under the bridge - this painting is just superb - picture perfect, we can almost understand why Michael would have wanted to paint this scene. How often do we take photos of a subject and then we are disappointed when it doesnt come out quite like we expected - however, paint the same scene and you are able to bring the atmosphere and mood into the painting.
