Painting Winx and Hugh Bowman on Dunedoo silo worth battling fear of heights, artist says

"I had to get over my fear of heights," Mr Mortimore said.

"I'm up there by myself in a little basket, it sways around a bit, and even when I come down to ground level, I still sway around for about half an hour."
