Australian Sienna – Discovering the Outback 2023
4 FEB TO 5 APR 2023 At Noosa Regional Gallery
Perhaps, but it wins awards. It hangs in galleries around the country. Other artists eagerly fill his regular workshops where he happily shares the techniques he has developed over years of touring and painting Australia.
His work is, in itself, a master class on the use of the colour Australian Sienna. Used with skill, it ranges from the rich tones of Uluru, to the golden hues of a river gum glade, to the transparent glow of a high sun in the Kimberlies.
It is pretty bloody good painting.
