Victoria Velozo describes her paintings of Australian Native Grassland Plains
November 23, 2017
I often depict the Kangaroo Grass and Saltbush plains which includes its bountiful wildlife. My art creates a connection of people through contemporary landscape paintings to bring about awareness of our unique environment in Australia.”
“Our National landscapes are places that capture the essence of our country and its unique blend of flora and fauna. Now days the identity of all Australians is being influenced by our natural environment. People are growing aware of the need to protect our coral reefs, our forests and our grassland plains. Our environment is being discussed more and more because of its wonder and beauty; I hope to express this rugged beauty in my unique art practice.”
“My style is very unusual and doesn't fit into the typical styles as I have blended contemporary ‘abstract’ oil painting with traditional ‘Realism’ watercolour which breaks many art rules! I delight in combining these genres as I love the softness of the watercolour in contrast to the vibrancy of the oil paint. I also enjoy the contrast of the realism with the abstract movement”.
