Development of ideas
On the two canvases I decided to paint one that represents the fate of those who committed crimes in the UK and the other of a ship of convicts that were sailing in the ocean approaching the coast line of Australia.
The grey in Hangman also added to the mood of the place the person was leaving and was entering a new world, the perception of this new world could be bright and colourful, as it is unknown what is beyond this world.
In the below, which is a painting of the first fleet ship of the coast line of Australia. Is still in progress.
