This is the story of how I came to paint "Red Earth".
There we were, flying over Western Australia on our way back to England and looking down on the arid landscape of the "Red Centre". The snaking roads were outlined against the setting sun and the characteristic colours of the outback glowed unforgettably. I whipped out my trusty sketchbook and made a few quick notes. Back in England again, I drew on my memories and watched the painting develop before my eyes. A unique experience!
