The Old Homestead, Lavendula Farm, Daylesford by Roz McQuillan

The Old Homestead, Lavendula Farm, Daylesford by 

Photographed at the wonderful Lavendula lavender farm, Daylesford. Italian-speaking Swiss immigrants built this golden stone building, which housed 13 children, and ran the dairy farm from the 1860s. There’s also lovely gardens, lavender fields, farmyard, the olive & chestnut groves, the vineyard – and in the distance the ancient volcano that delivered the good soil.
This photograph was featured in the Red Bubble groups Nostalgic Art and Photography, and ‘Rustic’ and has currently (16/10/10 ) been viewed 457 times.

My style is contemporary whilst firmly rooted in realism. I work in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, and mixed media, and am currently painting in oils. I find that changing and experimenting with mediums keeps me fresh and open to learning. I especially love capturing the human face and figure in oils, and photographing the urban landscape, including the amazing graffiti to be found in Melbourne.
