Exploring The Reef

I’ve had one of my best friends commission some paintings from me with the subject of the Great Barrier Reef. We spent a week sailing together late last year with both our families and she thought it would be nice to have some colourful reminders on her walls.

Whilst I took photos above the waters surface I have been relying very heavily on my memory and research to fill in the blanks for this project. It’s actually been fun and taken me back to school days when you’d dive into a topic rather than just painting what you’d see.

Testing out shapes and colours in these studies will hopefully result in a more polished and resolved final series.

Stay tuned for more works around this series but in the meanwhile if you’d like to see what I’m up to in the studio on a daily basis make sure you follow along with my Instagram Account @createdbyleahgay or on Facebook.

Until Next Time,

Leah

Leah

Australian Artist, painting with Gouache and Oil Pastel on Paper. Lover of lines, curves, colour and texture.

Born and bred in Melbourne, Australia, I've spent most of my adult life travelling, time living in Sweden and Adelaide and have settled in Brisbane with my little family.

I'm creative by nature and find inspiration in many different corners of this world, some just under my nose, others a life time away. I blog because I love to share what I discover, and to inspire myself.

You'll find my blogging about my paintings and artwork on:
