Watersheds is an exhibition of oil paintings by Richard Blundell that draw from the landscape of Daisy Hill. Painted en plein air in the Daisy Hill Conservation Park, Blundell’s process employs a meditation of place, emphasising a practice of seeing and being with a specific ecosystem. The title draws from the geographic areas of ridges that separate waterflows to rivers, basins or seas. Blundell paints in situ on a ridgeline that forms the south-western watershed causing the waterflow from Daisy Hill to flow through the landscape to Redlands Coast and Moreton Bay. Through the tradition of plein air painting, Blundell examines the biological and topographical qualities of Daisy Hill and its connection to Redlands Coast.
