New from the studio of Bruce Buchanan

'The Woolshed Chair' 
68x57cm Watercolour

A uniquely Australian painting, 'The Woolshed Chair' captures the spirit of our wool industry. One can just imagine the shearer or wool classer taking a break on the old blue chair, the open window providing a puff of breeze on a sweltering day.  Bruce has masterfully characterised the gorgeous soft light across the bale and floor.  The flecks of soft wool on the old floorboards lead your eye gently through the bottom of the work. Simply a wonderfully composed and executed painting, complemented by a contemporary wood grain frame. Perfection.
