Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

​a land of unknown seasons
ancient, silent and grand
now marked by progress
paths of bitumen all neat
melt in the noonday sun
harvest gathered
in silos and trucks
lines of dormant water
contrast neat cut lines
while her heart glows

outback Australia cattle in dry riverbedAerial view of people at the beachOutback western Queensland after the rains, cows looking for food. I created this work as it is in such contrast to the dry reds and greys that normally exist there.  My focus was on the cattle and the water but I really wanted to give a sense of depth; I wanted to create paths for the viewers' eyes.I am really pleased with this landscape delicately rendered, it captures the light and movement of a windy day. Galahs jostle for position next to the highway, waiting for the wheat truck to come by.  Naturally, the work has so many points of interest supporting the main story, you can just about the feel the fresh wind on your face.  The 'Van Goh'- like swirls in the sky capture the sense of movement and continually deliver you to different parts of the painting.  The cool colour palette and multi-layered acrylic paint on smooth prepared canvas would sit well on any wall.  This painting has so many little moments, you will keep finding new things to look at within it for a long time to come.
When you buy a Pete Martin painting, you are afforded the benefit of my 30 + years as an award-winning, professional artist:  my works are resolved, finished works of art.   I am not a hobbyist, this is my job.  I am a full-time artist and completely devoted to creating works of art that will stand the test of time.  It is always within my design that future generations understand my work.
