Bruce Buchanan - Country & Outback

Bruce Buchanan 'Where the country meets the outback' 75x99cm $2000

'This is along the pastoral fringe where the landscape changes in a subtle way.
Isolated stands of twisted Mallee Gums become focal points against low folding hills and a wide sky.
There is a hint of more arid land beyond. You know it’s Australia.
I am often compelled to paint this sort of subject'.
