by Steve Reynolds
Further to the post at http://mlssa.org.au/2020/09/17/paul-burnetts-oil-paintings-of-historical-ports-on-canvas/ ,
Artist Paul Burnett has sent us some more of his oil paintings of historical ports on canvas. These are all painted from historical archive photos in the State Library. (The Library allowed him to reproduce them in art as they are now out of copyright.)
Paul originally sent copies of some of his paintings to us after reading some articles on our website. Several of the paintings are linked to the subject matter in many of those articles.
The header photo is Paul’s painting of a jetty at Port Lincoln.
