Mt Cope

Dore StockhausenComment
My friends Rita and Bruce came to visit yesterday..We walk up and down Mt Cope. The view from the top is 360 degrees of highplains and hills. Hotham, Feathertop, Bogong and in the distance Mt Kosciuszko. Followed by a lovely lunch. And later on some painting. Bliss.

The first underpainting is done

And again, this painting will change dramatically over the next few weeks. I am working on 4 canvases at the moment. The patterns of the underpaintings are based on the view opposite my accommodation, the shadows created by the low autumn light and the burned yet regrowing snowgums. There is a beautiful crisp stillness in the mornings here and a different coloured light in the evenings that only exist in autumn and at a higher altitude.
