26/100 for 2013 – King Solomon’s Caves

King Solomon's Caves

This painting was done as an exercise in the Uni course I’ve been doing. The texture is built up with polyfilla moulded into shape with glad-wrap. I was working from a photograph I took of King Solomon’s Caves in Tasmania. The resemblance to the photograph is not too close, but it does perhaps have a bit of a cavey feel to it. It was an interesting project, and I think I’ll be using the technique again, provided the polyfilla sticks on OK.

King Solomon’s Caves: Oil on board-mounted canvas with polyfilla, 40×50 cms.
