Impression of Colour

BY Lauraine Diggins Fine Art | 05-Sep-2012

The intensity of the colour and light of Australia is often remarked upon and has proven particularly captivating for artists, especially painting en plein air. Indeed it is the key feature of a truly national ‘Australian’ style of painting, with the Heidelberg School’s characteristic ‘blue and gold.’ Colonial artists such as Nicholas Chevalier and Haughton Forrest, originating from Europe, were inspired by the unique Australian colour. The iconic works of the Australian Impressionist painters including Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Emanuel Phillips Fox and Walter Withers brought a new truth to colour in Australian art.
