Blossoms in the Valley

This new painting is on two ply wood panels 900x1200mm each. The total width is 2400mm. The ply is fixed to pine frame and joined in the centre with bolts. Ply is a tough surface to work on but is much lighter and stronger than Masonite. The paint is all acrylic and ink
The image is made from three photos. Far left is a shot taken from outside the empire hotel in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, looking down Anne street. The centre are cherry blossoms in Japan and the far right is a woman walking up Wickham street also in Fortitude Valley.

The light brow colour at the top of the image is from the exposed ply surface.
