The Finishing Touch

~ Community Hall, Saltwater Creek ~
90x110cms watercolour


in situ at the gallery

A beautiful new painting by Bruce Buchanan, just arrived at the gallery. The artist statement (below) sums this exquisite piece:-

"This community hall is in Tasmania, but the location is not the reason I painted it.  It is about the light, composition and the tonal values which capture the mood of the place.  I liked the perspective created by the closeness of this very simple little hall with the distant view of the river.  I also liked the water tank, exposed plumbing and tall chimney - so the important built elements are all there too."
