For an online painting-challenge, we where asked to make an image that would represent Australia!
It interested me, but did not know exactly how I would do it!
I ended up on the site of a couple of Globetrotters! http://www.bourlingueurs.com/
I scrutinized their photos and found 2 who appealed me very much!
One of Ayers Rock , and one of a crashed car in the middle of the dessert!
I melted them together to one photo!
Mark warned me that I painted “Kata Tjuta” instead of “Ayers Rock”!
The representation of this mountain and that derelict car described in my mind how I see Australia!
Beautiful nature and heritage nurtured by the Aboriginals, and the car representing the pioneers, adventurers and technology trying to find its place in that great big continent!
It’s a watercolor-painting
