"The Caravan Park" by Jeffrey Smart
I haven’t painted a caravan park (yet) but if I could find one I would. I have painted a retro beach motel though and I think the sentiment is the same. That’s what I love about Jeff’s work – It reminds me of my own! It’s a bit lonely and a bit cautionary but in a colourful and entertaining way. His unique perspective draws you into the scene and whether it’s a trailer park or cityscape a calm solitude always pervades. I don’t just look at theses paintings, I enter them. In fact, that’s me stepping out of the blue trailer to go put another shrimp on the Barbie for you!
