One summer’s day we took a drive out to Sofala, west of Bathurst, to check out this old gold rush town. After lunch, we followed the Turon River out of town – it’s just beautiful!
I was compelled to try to record an impression of it using watercolour – I was fascinated by the reflections in the water. However, I needed to keep it simple, otherwise I’d have been drawn into that thing of fussing over detail and I didn’t want to do that. (It’s hard to resist when it’s in your nature, though!)
I kept a reasonably restricted palette and worked quickly, with a little dry brush over the top when everything had dried, and resisted the urge to add pen afterwards.
‘Turon River, Sofala, NSW, Australia’ was completed on a piece of A3 watercolour paper (so it measures 42 cm wide and 29.7 cm high) and has a border of at least 1 cm all the way around, so there’s room for matting when framing.
