Trevor Purvis: Australian Sienna - Interpreting the Outback


My subject matter comes from camping expeditions into the centre of Australia. I surround myself with the sounds, smells, and sensations of the country and produce numerous studies using acrylic on paper or board.
When I return to my studio, I interpret these onto larger surfaces using acrylics first and then oils to get the added depth and energy. The exhibition name "Australian Sienna" celebrates the colour that embodies everything unique about the outback landscape. It's a sensory experience and much more than just a colour. 
The painting locations include, Darling River (Baaka), Mt Gipps Station, MacDonnell ranges NT, Flinders Ranges and Cooper Creek.
