Commission by DragonDew Commission by DragonDew
My finished commission, also not a great photo. It's 79 x 56 cm and is of somewhere around the Flinders Ranges which is up north from here. Heysen wandered far and wide doing landscapes around the hills here. He did amazing still life flower paintings but stopped doing them when his daughter started painting them. Not many people know that fact. Anyway hope you like it even though it's not a great photo of it. :)
Here is the reference print. [link]

I ran out of room to store them and sadly it's very hard to sell art here in Adelaide:( but thanks:heart:

Glad you like them, actually it's not an oil painting. It's acrylic...I'm allergic to turps so can't use oil paint :)
