This exquisite and beautiful painting scene in oil is beautifully painted showing you a scene of a young girl or lady walking through what seems to be dense Australian bush. The rich blue and white offset the dark brown thick bush. This painting is beautifully painted with all of the brush strokes and colour in the right places, to make up this scene, and that shows how good and professional this artist really is. This painting has been painted in an Impessionistic style like the artist has captured a fliker of a scene on that day. I feel this piece has a slight lonely/dark feel to it, like the girl/lady is lost in this dark and dense bush. This is a more rare piece of art work from him, as he specialises in landscapes and still-life. I love his style, the colours and subject matter he used. The way the paint/colour is applied and unusual subject matter, makes this painting a great work of art and that’s a sign of such an exceptional and great artist, no wonder he is a successful, well known and highly sought after artist. This exquisite painting 
The painting is signed on the bottom right corner of the painting as well on the back with title “A Walk In The Clearing” and is dated 4-5-91.
The painting and frame are in excellent condition with only some foxing to the matting (please see photos).
The frame is approximately 27cm x 23cm and is set in double cream and blue matting with a pale pink with gold highlights behind glass.
 
BIOGRAPHY
 

Charles Bock was born in Hamburg, Germany 1934

 

Charles studied with many well known artists. He specialized in landscapes and harbour scenes while working in Europe. He came to Australia in 1957 and now spends much of his time traveling and painting around the country. He has adapted his European influence to the Australian light and atmosphere, featuring tranquil landscapes, seascapes, forceful city scenes and portraits in his work.

 

Charles has had many successful one-man exhibitions in Australia, and his work is represented in private and corporate collections in Australia, Europe, the United States and Japan.  He is a member of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists and the Peninsula Arts Society.

 

He has won the 1988 Mornington Art Prize and his work has been acquired by the ANZ Bank, Westpac, ANL, Mercedes Benz, Oil Companies, the City of Frankston, Victoria, the City of Burnside, S.A., the City of Sparta, Greece and the University of Haifa, Israel.

 

In 1989 Charles won the First Prize for oil painting at the Mornington Rotary Art Show and a highly commended Delgany Award at the Sorrento Art Show.  In 1990 he was again given the Delgany Award and was highly commended at the Zonta Club Art Show at Toorak College, Mt Eliza.  There have been several other prizes and commendations since then and further inclusions in important collections.

 

Some years ago Charles taught painting and drawing to adult students in his Mt Eliza studio.  Several of these students have achieved prominence as professional artists.  He has also been in demand to give talks and painting demonstrations to art societies and art shows.
