Tungamah silo art addition

By Country News

Artist Sobrane has returned to add to her work on the Tungamah silo.

Sobrane added native birds and foliage to the kookaburra silo, which she said required a lot more painting technique than the first installment had.

“I want to do this all the time, I love the heights and the scale,'' she said.

“It's exhausting but it's creatively exhausting.''

The new addition took nine days to complete, almost double the amount of time spent on the first artwork.

Sobrane said she had 100 people watching her as she painted the last blue wren.

"It was awesome, very artistically stimulating,” she said.

Sobrane said many people asked her how she could paint on such a large scale.

“I just do it,'' she said.

“I did a roof once and you couldn't see it until we used a drone, and it worked.”
