I was lucky enough to experience an epic road trip across Australia in July of this year. We drove from Newcastle to Broken Hill, across the Nullarbor, down to Esperence in WA then onto Kalgoorlie, Laverton, then we hit the Great Central Road to Uluru! I was struck by the absolute beauty of the Australian outback. The wide open spaces, huge skies and the feeling of complete openness was exhilarating! The landscape was a continually changing canvas. The colours shifted from violet skies to brilliant blue, red sand crept into white sand then hit turquoise waters, gold spinifex emerged from orange dirt as the sky moved and changed with clouds, white one minute, purple the next. This amazing landscape confirmed for me that the best colour palettes are found in the natural world!
