Artists of the Outback Creative - Daniel Romaine

Quote from Daniel about his paintings to start you off.

Daniel says:

‘Visions of landscapes and spiritual beings appear to me in dots, sometimes they are familiar and other times they are unknown. It is as if my indigenous ancestors are creating the art through me. The visions are unpredictable and stay with me – almost haunting me – until they are painted. My main influences come from the shapes, colours and textures of the landscape. With every new painting I challenge myself to a more difficult use of technique to create an accurate representation of my vision. I aspire to produce artworks that people look at and see the image as clearly as I do “Like a photo in the mind” and then feel the peaceful energy of the natural landscape that has been shaped by the elements over time.’

‘It humbles me in knowing that I have given some of my spirit to each artwork. I hope that my work gives people pleasure and a sense of peace in spirit as it gives me great peace in my heart to paint images of our untamed, uniquely contrasting but extremely beautiful country.’ 

The Painting of “Sky People”

The Sky People are spirits watching over all life and geographical formations. Each face showing their individualism, the same as us.

This painting was very challenging and I used every technique of dotting I know. I created different elements using colours, shapes and direction to fill some of the spaces and represent the various elements of the scene. For me personally, I really like the elements achieved through using a soft blue tone palette. I am really happy with how it has turned out. It is a picture that does have a lot going on, quite busy in parts, but yet everywhere you look there is something interesting to look at with all the intricate details.

I have calculated that there is approximately 145,000 individual dots on this piece which has ended up being 750mm x 1000mm.

Bungles

The Painting of “Bungles” represents the Bungle Bungles in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The remarkable “beehive” domes of Purnulu National Park are the result of 20 million years of weathering on the layers of iron-coloured sandstone. It displays the way in which the rocky outcrops have eroded in layers. The narrow canyons made up of eroded sandstone towers. The coloured bands result from the weathering of different rock layers. The painting also acknowledges a continuous heritage of 20,000 years for the Kija Aboriginal People.

Bungles and was painted in 2007 and there are approximately 300,000 individual dots on this piece measuring 1000mm x 1400mm

The Painting of “Coral Spores”

Coral Spores is representative of the colours across the ocean reef when the coral releases its spores.

Big Lagoon

Big Lagoon is a series of magnificent, tranquil lagoons located just outside of Denham in Western Australia. This picturesque waterway is a spectacular and peaceful location in Francois Peron National Park.

Sitting on the shore I watched the abundant marine life frolic in the shallow waters.

I aspire to produce artworks that people look at and see the image as clearly as I do “like a photo in the mind” and then feel the peaceful energy of the natural landscape that has been shaped by the elements over time. With every new painting I challenge myself to a more difficult use of technique to create an accurate representation of the landscape I see in my vision.

In the painting “Big Lagoon” I experimented with more random dot configurations and dot direction as well as a large number of colour changes to display the images colour and texture variations. This painting is estimated to contain approximately 350,000 dots.

Above is a painting called Watarkka. You can see by the image above how Daniel's imagination with the help of the great spirits is able to transform a landscape into a incredible work of art. 

The Painting of “Watarkka” is a representation of the remnants of the Bungle Bungles found in Watarkka National Park 450km South-West of Alice Springs.
