Description

This landscape by Richard reflects the colour and formation of the many ranges, hills, gorges and flora that are found in his country, Ntaria (Hermannsburg), West of Alice Springs in Central Australia. This country truly has the blue and purple colours of the ranges in the distance, the rich colour in the sand and an amazing contrast when the plentiful flora is in bloom.
