Drawn to the mountain: A kunanyi/Mt Wellington sketchbook by Nola Parsons | HB with dust jacket
kunanyi is a mountain of many moods, of many faces. Capturing its majesty on a single day, or at a precise moment, does not tell its story. The mountain defies description and portrayal. Sunny, bright and breezy one day. Sullen and sinister on another. That’s if the mountain shows its face at all, choosing instead to hide behind a veil of mist and cloud. – Don Knowler
In this wonderful collection of pen-and-ink and watercolour paintings, artist Nola Parsons presents a series of visual meditations on a much-beloved Tasmanian landmark, kunanyi/Mt Wellington, capturing its varying subtleties of light and kaleidoscopic colours throughout changing weather and seasons. Interspersed with lyrical descriptions of mountains and nature from writers ancient and modern, Parsons offers us new ways of seeing a familiar feature of the Hobart landscape, and invites us to give it our care and respect.
