Muriel Luders, Country Scene

The work of art

Country scene is a beautiful triptych typical of her style. It depicts a background of rolling hills and scattered trees in the foreground. The scenery is lush and green with colours that seem soft and pastel like. Although this triptych is non descript, many of her works depict actual landscapes from across New South Wales in a similar style such as Tumut, Holbrook and Blowering Waters.
