Princes wharf in Tasmania’s capital, Hobart, is renowned for it’s history, it’s beautiful buildings and it’s close proximity to Salamanca Place.
It is the site of a number of events including the Taste of Tasmania held over the New Year period each year and markets aplenty.
The contrast of the white wharf and boats against the blue water, along with the sparsity of colour and linework is what appealed to me when painting this artwork. It is also a beautifully panoramic spot in Tassie’s south.

HANDMADE: All artworks have been adapted from a Google Earth* view, and designed in an abstract way which creates a special piece of art, a time in place where maybe it doesn’t exist in a few years time, therefore documenting history through art. All artworks have the longitude and latitude included, and you will therefore see the coordinates on each artwork. This means you can put those coordinates into Google Earth and see the location for yourself and how I have adapted it.
CARE: All artwork is unframed. If purchasing a paper artwork, it is recommended you insert your artwork into a suitable frame with matting surrounding the painting.
