Artwork statement:
The first of three paintings in a series. The villa is inspired by the sight of a lovely looking building on Hamilton Island which I saw on a trip to northern Queensland in August, 2022. I took a few photos at the time, knowing it would be a painting some day. Latent influences here are Jeffrey Smart, Edward Hopper and Mediterranean architecture on the Palafrugell coast of Spain. I worked quickly layer over layer in oils, aiming to capture the light and feeling of the moment when the building caught my eye, whilst walking across the island with my wife.
