Description

Han Heysen’s exceptional skill and subtlety as a watercolourist is revealed in this painting depicting perhaps what could be best described as a drover's view of his sheep in the long paddock. Heysen's ability to capture the Australian light, and the atmosphere of the harsh arid landscape is evident in this realistic depiction of flock of sheep in our barren inland.
