Artist's Description

White Shark V (Window)

This painting is the closet to the actual situation of my model shark at The Melbourne Museum. If you know the location, however, you can see that I’ve taken various liberties. The reflected trees, for example, are an invention. I put them there both for their colour and the jagged silhouette they provide.

The most obvious change made between the study and the final work is in the appearance of the figure. The girl in the study is loosely based on my wife, Peggy. My reference photos proved inadequate for the larger work and trying to coordinate all the elements needed to improve my source material (my wife, the setting, the correct light) proved beyond me. It was like, as they say, herding cats. In desperation, and with the deadline for the show approaching, I borrowed Natalie Portman’s head. Please don’t tell her.

I was interested in building much of the painting up in layers of very thin, translucent glazes.
