Iron Lace, Fitzroy by Roz McQuillan

Decorative cast iron lace work dates from early Victorian through to the Edwardian and Federation periods. Whether a grand mansion or a humble cottage, cast iron lace was the preferred finishing touch for the vast majority of houses, and can be found in the more historical areas of Melbourne.

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.

    So quaint and beautiful, the bike leaning against the fence looks perfect. I love these old terrace homes, so full of character. Great shot.

  • Thanks very much, Lisa!
