From the seascape series - this limited edition print of Yallingup Lookout is one of the most popular limited editions. It highlights the unique melalueca trees that grow exclusively on Cape Naturaliste in Western Australia. The windswept shape is an icon of Yallingup where these hardy trees survive and flourish in the harsh conditions.
The headland looks like a picture postcard of the scottish coast, except Yallingup is in the South West of W.A - where the beaches are white and the water is blue. Its one of Western Australias most popular surfing spots, and you can still go there and be the only one on the beach - a pristine environment all to yourself
This azure blue example of the ocean looking towards Sugar Loaf rock through the melalueca trees stemmed from many studies of the area in coloured pencil.
Yallingup W.A. is such a beautiful place, the views from every angle are breathtaking. I used to live there - and drew it constantly with coloured pencils on a textured paper.
Yallingup means 'place of love' in aboriginal - and at night the sound of the thundering surf makes the whole place feel powerful - I used to feel like it was the most beautiful place in the world
It is so hard to encapsulate the entire of Yallingup in single image - it can change from 'serene' to 'drama' depending on where you are in it
The long sweeping views both up and down the coast are going to be the subject of my next few paintings
When it comes to the sort of interior design in which a Yallingup Lookout print would shine - I personally feel it would belong with a white - bright - holiday home feel. With accents of the aqua blue in the room - in pillows or small objects - but everyone has their own character and aesthetic
Here are some examples of the Yalingup Lookout limited edition print in peoples houses
The scene works here with the tiny hightlights of the wood colour being reflected in the area of the image beneath the trees on the sand
This is a a mounted print from the Dunsborough series - I love the colours and it shows what you can do with some creative framing and display
The mailing is free within australia - and it comes in a great big package (60cm x 80cm)
Imagine getting such a big present - and with some colourful paper and gorgeous big ribbons -Imagine giving such a great present (I did it last christmas - awesome).
The foam-core that makes the package also ends up being really useful for kids to paint and draw on, or to express big designs on or , something I did the other day, was to make a huge wall calander - nothing is wasted.
The value of buying a limited edition print is that it is LIMITED. The more that sell- the less there are - the prices go up....just saying...
anyway - the details are:
Along with limited edition prints like Noahs Ark and Under the Jetty - The Yallingup Lookout is one of the better selling prints. The editions were made in runs of 900 - and over half of this images pile has gone.
52 cm x 64cm before mounting
The limited editions are printed onto a 270gsm Monsa Satin paper by a four colour lithographic process - meaning they are not giclee prints which are made to order out the back on my home printer (and likely to fade) - they have already been created at great expense (meaning I have invested over one hundred thousand dollars in them and dont talk to me about storage).
Its FREE, easy, joyful, uplifting, and has enormous potential
