This beautifully painted painting in the Realistic\Impressionistic style in oil on board, is an original painted landscape of the Australian outback. The artist has beautfully painted this landscape in dashing process brush strokes of rich cool and earthy colours. She has also used a beautiful light pink on the mountain which suggests and correlates with the title, of that soft light that hits the landscape as the sun starts to go down in the late afternoon. The artist has whipped her brush across the board to make tree limbs or bushes with sometimes one stroke. I think this is one of the good signs of a great artist to have confidence of appliying a stroke with out redoing it and you can see why her works are so highly sought after and collected.
The painting is in a gold and black timber frame. The frame are in very good condition, with only a very little wear which is excellent for it's age and paintings are in excellent condition (please see photos).
The frames are approximately 30 x 25cm in size. The artwork is signed on the right bottom hand corner of the painting and also titled “Evening-Buffalo” and name printed on the back.
