ART ON SHOW
AFTER six-weeks of blood, sweat and tears Gary Woodfield has completed his latest art work depicting the Battle of Little Bighorn, Fatal Ground, Blood On The Grass.
Mr Woodfield worked tirelessly researching the history of the battle and working with the North American Indian Federation.
“I like to acknowledge the North American Indian Federation Groups for their guidance on truth and accuracy, on such a highly debated and difficult topic,” Mr Woodfield said.
“The arduous journey into this challenging painting had taken me six hard weeks of Archive research and countless sketches,”
Mr Woodfield said there was a lot of detail in getting uniforms and clothing portrayed correctly.
“I have had interested parties in America inquire about my latest project,” he said.
Battle of Little Bighorn, Last Stand Hill, June, 25 1876 was where the Lakota’s and Cheyenne warriors overwhelm Custer’s remaining few soldiers.
This painting by Mr Woodfield is based entirely from a Native American Indian perspective, and under careful consideration for each cavalryman who had fallen.
A lot of hard research and determination has gone into this artwork.
It was created with sponges, skewers and cotton buds – no brushes used.
This very significant historical painting will be on display during Mr Woodfield’s, June-July art exhibition at the Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery.
It is the only known painting in existence based on the Montana memorial battlefield of Little Bighorn.
