One of the things I love about bush camping is the campfire we sit around and often cook our dinner on.
After dinner we enjoy the atmosphere, surrounding the fire, to talk and sit gazing at the stars, especially enjoying the first hour or so of darkness when the flying objects, in the sky, the satellites and if we are lucky the shooting stars, are most visible.
Painting of dusk, by firelight, adds a unique effect and many times I have worked for an hour every evening for up to a couple of weeks, capturing this particular effect in an artwork.
Often I have sat gazing into the fire, trying to capture, the image of those dancing flames, the light, and the colour, in my brain, trying to work out how to paint, a near impossible, to paint moving subject.
I travel extensively to draw inspiration for my paintings and writing from life experience.
