Colours of Kakadu

Located 240 kilometres east of Darwin in Australia’s tropical north, Kakadu National Park is Australia’s largest terrestrial national park. Kakadu covers almost 20,000 square kilometres and is a place of enormous ecological and biological diversity. It extends from the coast and estuaries in the north through floodplains, billabongs and lowlands to rocky ridges and stone country in the south. These landscapes are home to a range of rare and endemic plants and animals, including more than one-third of Australia's bird species and one-quarter of its freshwater and estuarine fish species.

Kakadu is considered a living cultural landscape. The traditional owners Bininj Mungguy have lived on and cared for this country for more than 50,000 years. Their deep spiritual connection to the land dates back to the Creation and has always been an important part of the Kakadu story. Courtesy

This art work can be photographically printed on metallic paper with a simple white frame, mat and no glass, a white custom frame white mat and museum glass or a stretched canvas.

I painted a Kakadu gorge on a 40"x40" canvas and photographed it over two hours. The result is below, almost 200 images, some more detailed than others. Some images are similar but orientated differently by rotating the canvas for different light and focus points. Enjoy.
