Di Taylor is one of WA’s most prolific and passionate landscape painters. Big Sky Country is a collection of works created by Di Taylor in the natural bush of the northern wheat belt area and southern coast of WA.

Inspired by many trips to Carnamah, Margaret River and Albany, working on location using the space to create the freedom that only comes with a big sky, Di was immersed into the amazing diversity of this flat expanse of land with horizons that stretch on forever, butting up against the amazing ever-changing colours of our Australian sky.

After carrying the big canvases and crates of paints, through the prickly scrub, Di wanted to achieve instant immersion into the landscape, and find a space of flat ground where she could lie and look up into the sky watching as the rabbits, horses and emus drift by in all their fluffy white.

She would quickly note on the canvas, scribbling in charcoal and ochre whatever was in reach, framed by rough wiry trees, stretching their gnarly fingers up trying to grab at the blue as it goes by.
The rhythm created by the curves and sharp protruding objects, demanding attention at the base of the ocean of blue.

Come and meet Di at the opening on Friday, 17 November, at 6pm. Big Sky Country is on show 10am–4pm, Thursdays through Mondays, until 17 December.

Learn landscape painting from Di Taylor. Di Taylor is one of those artists who has ‘always painted’. Di started her art career at the National Art School in Sydney at 17yrs, and then went to live in the country as a ‘farmer’s wife’. Now with success tucked firmly under her arm having many solo exhibitions annually in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Margaret River, Yallingup, Broome, she’s coming to Collie to share her passion and skills with her exhibition and a one day workshop.
