Random Art
May 6, 2018

Here is another post inspired by the former senior campus of the Castlemaine Secondary College.

Containers of liquid paint have been dropped and splooshed to create random art on asphalt and concrete.

I liked the way the shadows from a small eucalypt contributed to the artistry of these images.

It was an interesting exercise circling around to capture the artsiest sprays, splodges and blobs.

 

 

This one incorporated natural elements of earth, leaves and bark.

 

In a radical move, a vertical surface was given the random art treatment.

Copper and Silver
April 15, 2018

In my previous post featuring the former senior campus of the Castlemaine Secondary College, I focused on the unexpected beauty of some shattered windows. In my wanderings around the site, my eyes were drawn to the bark of this eucalyptus tree with its shimmering colours of copper and silver.

As clouds drifted across the sky, I waited patiently until the sun came out again so I could capture the brightly shining colours.

Of course, as I examined the trunk and branches, I discovered interesting lumps, bumps, textures and drips of sap.

They make beautiful images.
