I am currently working on a new project at Winton Wetlands. This road and trees were under water before Lake Makoan was de-commissioned.
The idea was to paint fish designs specific to the area. I decided to create a large fish across multiple trees that join up when the viewer gets to a certain point along the road - cool idea, difficult to achieve!
Fortunately I had Jake and Sam to be my painting hands and I communicated to them from the viewing point, where to paint marks on the trees - sometimes via mobile phone! I then added some other smaller fish to compliment the larger one and give reference for the larger fish when it doesn't line up.
I will be filling them with colour and will be adding rings 5m up the trees to mark the historical waterline when Lake Makoan was at its capacity.
Location is Boggy Bridge Rd a few km's past the Winton Wetland Hub.
