Callala Smoke

callala smoke - 9x5 impressionistic painting by hela donela

I had planned to paint of Currarong fires a few weeks prior – but as it happened, we found ourselves surrounded by bushfires – right here at Callala. I painted this 9×5 impressionistic piece in my open-air studio while ash floated in the air and smoke surrounded us (every now an then escaping the smoke inside to breathe better). Some of the ash I collected and painted with it.

MEDIUM AND MATERIALS USED: acrylic, egg shells and bushfire ash on wood panel
SIZE: Approx size 9 x 5 inches (unframed)
YEAR: 2016 (November)
PLACE: JERVIS BAY, NSW, AUSTRALIA

NOTES: $380

This painting received Highly Commended at WWAS 9×5 Impressionism, Bondi – December 2016
