Working with oils on canvas, talented artist Almar Zaadstra has been painting Australian history since 1980. His love of the traditions and romance of pioneering Australia presents itself in the fine detail of his art, which accurately depicts the farming practices, the costumes of the era and the wonderful, hardworking Clydesdale horses. This detail gives great realism and authenticity to the nostalgic images.
