Artist's Description

A landscape of sorts. As I’ve already mentioned, reality is not my forte. I do paint landscapes in this style, which is accomplished quickly with a large brush and a lot of wiping through. I have to use oils, as acrylic is not usually successful. I don’t claim any great talent here, as this type of painting has to be executed quickly, and the numerous vertical divisions play havoc with standard composition. I was taken by the distress caused by our worsening weather patterns, and painted this after a visit to the Mallee last year. This painting could be classed as a ‘pot boiler’, but is too harsh to rate the romantic though derogatory ‘Chocolate Box’.
