The Tank and the Windmill (21.5 x 27 cm)
This textured, acrylic painting with well-placed windmill and tank, tells a story.
The artist was probably influenced by his study of early Australian Impressionist artists’ techniques when he painted this slightly primitive landscape.
The gently-blended colours of the sky aids atmospheric perspective and is in contrast to the swift, brighter brush strokes and short dabs of yellow and green paint in the foreground.
The old tank, possibly tumbling and rusty, is well placed on the canvas.
Acrylic on Masonite, 1977. (Cleaned and framed.)
