Patina Inspiration

I recently went to Cockatoo Island in Sydney to see the installations there as part of the Sydney Biennale. It was a gorgeous day and while we didn't see as much of the art as we would like (little people sometimes have other ideas than standing still) it was a great day with family and friends.

The art was inspiring but, and not to discount it in any way, for me I was so inspired by the beautiful patina of the sensitively restored convict buildings up on top of the hill.

The layering of materials, texture and the overlay of colours with chipped away paint in various shades revealing weathered stone, tin and brick inspire me no end.

Here is my day in images.
