"Lost Worlds" - kunanyi and Tasmanian Tigers Watercolour
The last known Tasmanian tiger (Thylacine) died in the Hobart Zoo, Tasmania, on September 7, 1936. They were once here and now their presence is intangible but a constant presence nevertheless.
kunanyi/Mount Wellington is a constant living presence in Hobart, Tasmania. It is a wild place and on the mountain there is a track named the Lost World Track. I let these two ideas form the basis for this emotive painting.
This print is printed on William Turner 310gsm print version, textured watercolour paper with archival inks, to look and feel like a watercolour painting. No wonder I have so many people ask me if the print is an original painting!
