Day 12 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge with Leslie Saeta.

Yesterday I mentioned that the challenge had led me to wanting to paint slightly larger paintings that tell more of a story.

So over the last few days I have been busy experimenting with a variation of these paintings … more on the romantic side. So look out for them starting tomorrow.

This painting is off a homestead that I came across in Dunkeld in the Southern Grampians.

Dunkeld is a popular place for travellers to stop and has some dramatic backdrops of the southern end of the Grampians region.

This old homestead looked like it had been there almost as long as the Grampians themselves. I was really drawn to the random haphazard way the garden had grown over time almost covering the house from view.

Note: If you want to follow along each day of the 30 day challenge then enter your email on the right hand side where it says ‘Get Blog Updates’. You will then need to confirm your email. Once you do you will then get an email notification each time I post a new painting to the blog.
