Snow on Mt Buller

Brrr. It was a chilly hike through the low-growing and twisted snow gums on the east slopes of Mt Buller. The skiing season had yet to get properly underway so we had the place to ourselves. A wonderful new range of colours and sensory experiences to be had from the environment here.

This is a gouache study that quickly gets to the essence of the experience. I love gouache for its colour density, working feel and its beautiful powdery surface once dry. Sadly I find it hopelessly fragile in a studio with water leaks and possum invasions. It’s for studies only.
