Larapinta (finke River) Northern Territory - Painted Landscape Series

Description : The Macdonnell Ranges are the main source of water for the Finke River which is the oldest river in the world. It rarely flows - usually it consists of a few waterholes and is often completely dry. This is truly a sunburned country. We spent some time on the Finke a few years ago - right before rain; and it is amazing to watch the water trickle and eventually become a stream. This semi-abstract-semi-realism Australian landscape is a colourful rendition of the land around the Finke, with the Ranges stretching vast across the horizon. Mineral-rich earth yields the most beautiful colours while tall sparse gum trees are the perfect contrast. The sides of this painting are painted white, and it is ready to hang, with felt pads and quality picture wire. If you would like the sides painted a different colour, please let me know (for example, pale grey, pale pink, aqua, or coral would look beautiful as well). It has been painted on high quality gallery-standard canvas, using a very limited palette (cad red, cobalt blue, cerulean blue, burnt umber, lemon, yellow ochre and white). I am a prolific artist working full time from my studio in central Victoria, with much of my art being held in private collections around Australia, as well as exhibiting in local galleries and at the Victorian Artists Society in Melbourne. All of my paintings are packed with the greatest care.

There's never a better time to buy original art than right now.  So, let me introduce myself.  Born into an incredibly creative family, it was natural that life lead me here; poised; brush in hand.  I use art to express my immense – well, let's say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks.  Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.  Lately I have introduced skin tones into my art to further broaden my skills and inspiration.  

You will rarely see me paint a landscape in the traditional sense. Instead, I prefer to get up close and personal with my subject, study its form and colour, its character and its flaws, and translate this impression into something new: cropped, colourful, suggestive, and alive.

So please, sit back, browse through my portfolio, and maybe one of my paintings will find its new home.

I am a member of Victorian Artists Society, Nagambie Artists Group, and Seymour & District Art Society Inc, and an active member of the art community with paintings exhibited on a continual basis.  You can also follow my journey on social media by searching my name Eve Sellars.
