Description: A typical kind of twilight scene you get from the highways and byways (mainly byways) of the Australian outback. Pencil on canvas. © Su Schaefer 2013 A naive twilight or early evening scene with eucalypt, wallabies and grass tree in the Australian bush. Entry in the Highways and byways contest.
© Su Schaefer 2013

I used photographs taken when traveling around Australia as inspiration for this scene. My aim was to explore the way key features of the landscape become silhouettes and the colors, especially those of distant hills, change in the early evening (when the heat dies and you can appreciate the scenery again).

Pencil on canvas, signed, color and gradients applied, basic repeat.
Fabric: designed for an 18" x 21" fat quarter (four to the yard for 42" wide fabrics) [150 ppi]. Quite fun as Wallpaper, where it looks like a picture gallery [262 ppi]. Gift wrap: 375 ppi - half-drop repeat.

su_g says: Thanks so much for your feedback Robin - a lot of Australia reminds me of Arizona too (or should that be vice versa) except, as you say, minus the wallabies!

su_g says: Thank you all so much for your lovely comments Tina, Vo, Jasmin, Cal and Motyka, and for the really helpful feedback Cal - you have ideas I never would have and I'm grateful for them. Re your late night ponderings... horizontals are supposed to make spaces feel wider while verticals make them feel taller, but I suspect in actuality it depends on what's in the design (like some people have recently shown with stripes - it's not a one rule fits all... (sigh), it never is, is it?) But I am going to play with your idea for the vertical when I get time, so thanks again!

materia...

materialsgirl says: So quiet, peaceful and love the roos. I wonder if this could be enlarged and turned 90 degrees to run continuously...kind of like an outback landscape. Seeing more people doing large scale work has got me thinking BIG! Bear with me as I ponder.... If you had a small room and ran a landscape image on fabric that was fairly large scale (say the width of a yard) all the way around it, would that have the effect of making the room feel larger like a window or mirror would or would it make the room feel smaller? It's late here and my mind is on the loose.

su_g says: Many thanks for the lovely comments Sue Ellen, Deborah and Penny! Re adobe walls - yes! you totally 'get' the reds! I put a blue wash over the brown of the forehills to get that 'distant' color - on hot days the evaporation of the oils from eucalypts is what adds the blue to the far landscape - or so I have read. Will definitely offer as a wall decal if the colors print ok (all an experiment at this stage!). Thanks again, really appreciate the feedback.

anniedeb says: Oh, this is pretty, Su. Reminds me of areas in west Texas and as Fireflower stated below, the colors are reminiscent of the colors of adobe walls.

fireflower

fireflower says: Lovely colors! (That muted red you've used for the far hills and the frame is just the color of my parents' adobe-style house in Albuquerque , and it's also the color of the living and dining room in the house my parents had before that one!) I like the gradient for the sky, and the dark silhouettes that pull me into the landscape. I hope you're going to offer this as a wall decal, as well as fabric!
