Shearing Shed: Willaura

These photographs were taken by Max Darby on May 31st. 2013


Many Australian art students study paintings made by early artists (such as Impressionist, Tom Roberts) that show the inside of the sheds where sheep shearing takes place.  These photographs were taken to show what a Shearing Shed looks like in structure, its colours, light qualities and atmosphere. They might provide motivation for students to undertake a series of drawings, quick painted sketches or longer studies based on this strong Australian cultural tradition.
