Just finished this painting. It is my attempt at a looser, more impressionist style city scene. This is Moir’s (later T&G) chambers on the corner of St George’s Terrace and Barrack Street, Perth, Western Australia, as it looked in the 1950’s.
Sadly, a building which was regarded as one of the finest in Perth was demolished in 1960, in the face of much protest, to make way for another unappealing concrete office block.
I had a lot of fun doing this and think I managed to stay true to my idea of painting with less precise detail.
