Leap belongs to a sustained series of paintings from the mid 1980s that developed from drawings and watercolours Cassab made of the desert landscape. In this major painting, fragments of the charcoal underdrawing appear through the colourful surface of oil paint. Apart from giving an indication of how the painting was made and adding depth to the image, it reveals the absolutely fundametal role drawing has for Cassab’s paintings of the outback.
