Country Cottages

Country Cottages

Country cottages and old mill homes on Western Australia's south coast are one of my favorite subjects. I find it intriguing how these historical buildings and their surrounding gardens always appear different due to changing seasons and time of day. I endeavored to capture their characteristic charm by exaggerating old sagging roofs, leaning water tanks and irregular picket fences. Lines were scratched into thick wet paint on roofs and walls to create texture and mimic corrugated iron and timber cladding of which the cottages are made.
