Beside the Falls, is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.
This artwork depicts the rushing water of Russell Falls, Mt Field national park, Tasmania, as viewed from part way up a track that leads to the top of the falls. I am often inspired by the visual effects of moving water and this was a perfect example, with white areas forming where fast flowing water hits the rocks, and smoother reflective areas in the eddies. The overcast sky reflections and the tannin-infused rainforest water dominated the colours of the falls. The waterfall was always glimpsed through lush foliage, transitioning to dryer, more olive toned bushland in the far distance.
