The stunning combination of charcoal and watercolour landed one Launceston artist as a finalist in a popular art prize.
Graeme Whittle entered his Corra Linn work into the Heysen Prize for Landscape Painting.
Though he did not win, the artist took out a finalist spot with his artwork depicting the gorge which the North Esk River flows through.
However, charcoal is a medium in which Whittle had not previously had much experience with.
"I found [working with charcoal] fairly easy actually," he said.

"I definitely achieved what I set out to do with it."
Once the work was complete, Whittle decided to add colour to the landscape with watercolour.
He said the technique enhanced the details, bringing out every little crack and crevice.
However, the details were hard work, with the piece taking about two or three months to complete.
The work is still for sale and is currently hanging in Gallery Pejean.
