‘Abbotsford from Studley Park’ Alexandra Sasse 2016
Larger Landscapes $4000 – $8000
Larger landscapes are completed over a period of months, on site. It is vital to complete the work within a season as the colours of the landscape change so dramatically. I return to the same spot in the same weather and and the same time of day for as long as it takes to complete the work. I am often asked about photographs, but I don’t use them because I don’t find them useful. Both colour and perspective are altered by the camera. The suburbs of Melbourne are a fascinating motif, the light and colour is very specific to our city. This painting above was done in the early morning from the Studley Park boulevard looking across the Children’s Farm to Mt Macedon. Preview more landscapes here.
Small landscape works from $1500
Smaller scale works are completed in an identical manner; these also require multiple return visits to the same site. I am a fan of the Bureau of Meteorology weather forecast!
