Painting Ochres

Having seen and been immersed in the stunning shades of ochre in the far north of Australia (The Kimberley and Kakadu), I find myself painting the colours….well, trying to approximate them. It’s not easy. There were shades of pink that I saw in the rock cliffs of the Berkeley River….not a colour that my otherwise very good camera could capture. When we took our photographs of the amphitheatre-like cliff walls of the river, I was inexplicably taken back to a the temples of the Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia. Maybe they are both sandstone? They are definitely both majestic formations of rock that cannot be forgotten.
