Red Centre

Barbara Carmichael lives near me here in Sydney. We met when we first moved to the area a year ago but I only got to see some of her paintings very recently. She paints amazing big landscapes on a grand scale. This painting 'Red Centre II' speaks for itself. In addition I think the fact that she chooses to work on long canvasses - this one is 2m x 1.2 m - adds further impact as it is like looking at the horizon when you are indoors.
