You hear about these Artists, you read their profiles, look at their pictures and videos – watch their progress across the world – but it isn’t until you actually physically stand and watch them paint – that you realise the magic in their brushes, the inspiration that comes from their minds and hands!
This was the experience late yesterday afternoon – Alvaro Castagnet, international Artist and traveler with an amazing profile …………… now I concur – I know – watching him translate the late Brisbane afternoon from before our eyes to the paper was deeply inspiring.
The late afternoon light under the Captain Cook Bridge – capturing the colours of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs – colours that are new to my palette but which work perfectly from the eyes of this amazing Artist visiting our town!
Soft strong washes – a dichotomy maybe ….. but they work!
……………. the magic begins
Gorgeous details – softly washed into the image – strong shadows
………………. to the details of the cranes on the skyline!
An absorbed audience

Just stunning – work in less than 2 hours! Hat off Alvaro Gastagnet
