Fred Williams Art - The inspiring red dry landscapes of Australia are all rolled into one artistic masterpiece in Fred Williams, "My Garden." 

We put our ideas on the paper, interpreting his style and ideas as we went. Australia is so different to England and Europe, as he found out on his way back to Australia after travelling to Europe -and which led him to become a contemporary artist.The colours here are so vibrant and strong compared to the soft blues and grays that he was used to. 

We used orange and red paint as a backdrop and, once that was dry, we printed with cardboard or painted on trees and shrubs with black and white paint. Overall this art was very interesting and fun. It didn’t really matter if you accidently splattered paint or put a huge blot on your work because it was easily covered up. We were all inspired greatly and the end result was amazing! Fast Facts- Date of birth January 23, 1927.  Place of birth Richmond.  Date of death April 22, 1982 Place of Death Hawthorn
