Off Macaulay Point 2006
acrylic, graphite and pumice on canvas 29″ x 33″
The first time I attended MISSA, about ten years ago, I took a week long painting class with artist and instructor, Xane St Phillip. One fine day, we went on a field trip to Fort Rodd Hill. Xane is an excellent instructor, with a command of both colour and composition.
I took a lot of polaroids that day, made colour notes, and did some field sketches. Off Macaulay Point is based on that field trip.
If you’re in Victoria, check out Art Victoria Now at the Atrium, and Me, Myself and I at Cedar Hill Art Centre.
Fort Rodd Hill and MISSA at Pearson College in Metchosin are also beautiful places for a visit!
