My latest crush of the arty farty variety is Clarice Beckett. I'm OBSESSED, people.
I just love the dreamy, hazy quality of her paintings. The light! The impressionistic, minimal style. I have walked down that dusty road to the sea, I've gazed shivering at those lights across the water and I've stood in that tranquil pink sunrise.
My extensive research* tells me that although she was celebrated for her still life work and her talent for portraiture, her favourite thing to paint was landscapes.
