Artist's Description

A small tannin stained creek on the edge of the Tarkine in north-west Tasmania spills its way toward the sea.
The colouring is a natural stain that comes out of the heath, button grass and melaleuca vegetation. This stained water is very common in Tasmania and is some of the sweetest water I have ever drank.
When the water is shallow with a sand bottom it is a beautiful sepia tone and as it gets deeper it turns black.
When it hits turbulence it whitens the same as any water does and gives a myriad sepia shades depending on the level of turbulence.
