Singing To Tibrogargan by Heather Delaney

<< Previous Item Next Item >>


ARTIST NOTES: I cannot explain the connection but instead painted what I felt of this overpowering sight at Tibrogargan Glasshouse Mountains Queensland where the Willy Wagtail pair sang melodically to the weather carved gorilla like mountain. Using a full sheet of 640g hot pressed paper pouring watercolour to create those massive crevices. The Chemistry leaves me breathless.

Heather grew up at Jimbour on the treeless plains west of Toowoomba where the vast horizons shimmer and melt into infinity. Heather has been involved in art since her teenage years, an active member of the Dalby Art Group, participated in four McGregor Art Schools, worked as a professional photographer and is a current tutor and member of the Redcliffe Art Society after serving on their committee for many years. Students embrace Heather’s ‘just have a go’ attitude especially when using the watercolour “pouring technique” to allow the water to take you on an exciting, colourful, unpredictable journey.  Heather also teaches paper stretching, pouring transparent washes with water based mediums, the use of masking fluid and how to retain white paper without using a lot of brushwork.
