Rick Amor is having an exhibition at the Castlemaine Art Gallery during June - great excuse for a country jaunt.
I enjoyed the gallery. The exhibition showcases how Amor composes his oil paintings. He produces sketches, prints and watercolours that are then used as guides for the final paintings. Fascinating to follow the process from concept to finished artwork.
Travelling by train off-peak is cheap, easy and very relaxing – even some grand old stations and fine stone bridges to admire whilst charging through the lush Victorian countryside.
