Castle-View Colours was created initially as an exemplar for my Year 12 Visual Arts in Practise Students. The task I had created for them was to create a landscape painting that incorporated urban and natural. They needed to find an art movement that influenced them with it too.
For me, it was an easy choice to paint the Townsville landscape. I grew up in Townsville with it's backdrop of Castle-Hill and the sugar-shaker skyline over the marina. I have always adored North Queensland because of my love for the Great Barrier Reef.
This painting for me covers both the beauty and colours of the North Queensland landscape and hopefully captures a bit of why I call Townsville home.
