Bush Retreat

An exquisite new oil on canvas by Christopher Hooper. The light and shade in this work is just exquisite.  Chris actually "finished off" the painting by trekking through the bush and set up his easel and captured the last rays of light to get the colours "in situ".  We quite often have a lot of seascapes at The Manly Gallery - however, how refreshing to see a lovely piece of Australian bush to compliment the seascapes from time to time.  Keep trekking in the bush Chris if you can give us such beautiful work like this - what an inspiration.
