The Country – The Land

Since 2013 I have been travelling around and painting away from the coast with a fellow artist. The land and country changes dramatically depending on where you are. How much rainfall and elevation.

A few trips to Bathurst have been made. Bathurst and surrounding country is rich beautiful hilly country. Alive with wildlife. A mixture of grazing country and natural bush.

Then travelling further West to the start of The Outback in Western NSW. Wheat and sheep country. Red soil and colours of the vegetation and crops. Changing with and without rain. Changing with the seasons and the age of the crop. Vivid green to a beautiful silver of the wheat stubble. The Landscape is big, silent and powerful.Then beyond… It is a big place and there is a lot to do.
