Caravanning with Wep: Mar – Aug 1937, a 6 month painting sabbatical travelling via caravan around New South Wales and south east Queensland.

Wep & Jess take a break on the way to the Snowy Mountains

In 1937 Wep took off on a 6 month painting sabbatical to travel with his wife Jess in their caravan around the New South Wales and south east Queensland countryside .  He kept a journal of sorts of that trip; a record of his impressions of people he met, the landscape – it’s colour and light and his struggle in developing his own painting style. As I transcribe this work I will be posting the entries to this blog. Later, I hope to include some of his photos and links to works which I have identified.
