'Summer Haze' - mixed media on board 127 x 70cm - $2,000

Penelope’s works are characterized by layered, textural and etched surfaces where the contours 
of the landscape often merge the delineation between land, sea and sky. 
This layering of mixed media with the predominant use of coloured inks on timber shapes, 
perfectly cut to size by finewoodworker and husband Darren Oates, in his workshop, which
allows Penelope to explore varying shapes and contours as a painting surface, 
rather than always adhering to the more conventional and restrictive size and shape of a canvas.
