What Teddy Saw

As mentioned in the last post, Rapeseed field Count and I had a mini road trip on the Great Ocean Road during the October Labour Day long weekend.

Great Ocean Road is known for its scenic drive and I took hundreds of pictures per day and Rapeseed field (although this isn’t part of Great Ocean Road but it was part of our long weekend drive) wasn’t the only breathtaking scenery we witnessed.

One of the most beautiful view was at the start of our journey at Teddy’s Lookout where you can take in the ocean, beach, mountain and the Great Ocean Road all in one sight. It’s spectacular!

For such a breath taking view, I attempted to capture it in two ways – one just by looking at the photo without any sketch and one with sketch then painting.


Loosely painted without any sketch

The above painting is the painting without any sketch where I just started to lay down the paint.  I think it’s less detailed and perhaps simpler mix of colours.  Although it is looser compared to the painting below; I wish I was even more looser.

I may attempt it again by not sketching and putting a time limit to myself so that I don’t get caught up on details.


Sketch then painted version

I’ve been enjoying masking the paper beforehand so there is a clean white border around the painting and this is a good example above.

What do you think? Which painting do you like better or captured the Great Ocean Road better in your view? I’d love to know!

Cheers to letting go,
