This beautiful artwork by South African artist David Bucklow featuring Karoo Waterpump.
The American windmill, or wind engine, was invented by Daniel Halladay in 1854 and was used mostly for lifting water from wells. Larger versions were also used for tasks such as sawing wood, chopping hay, and shelling and grinding grain.In early California and some other states, the windmill was part of a self-contained domestic water system which included a hand-dug well and a wooden water tower supporting a redwood tank enclosed by wooden siding known as a tank house. During the late 19th century, steel blades and steel towers replaced wooden construction. At their peak in 1930, an estimated 600,000 units were in use
In an artistic style that is most definitely photo-realistic and showing tremendous talent and technique in the detailed treatment of his artworks, artist David Bucklow’s content repertoire includes many of South Africa’s iconic landscape and seascape scenes, as well as African portraits.
David Bucklow is a fine artist living in Cape Town, South Africa. He was born in 1969 and has been practising art for many years, ultimately making it his profession, and producing work for the last 30 years. David’s paintings explore a wide range of wildlife and local landscapes.
He works with a selection of acrylics on canvas to capture highly detailed imagery – almost as though experiencing his subjects and scenes from life and through that precise perspective. His interest in wildlife and the environment was established as a young artist and developed swiftly as he observed the African biosphere. He progressed quickly as he discovered the endless wonders of nature within this beautiful continent.
David’s work has become widely admired and collected nationally and internationally. Some of his most recognisable pieces feature magnificent portraits of wild animals within contrasted and evocative landscapes. Viewers are drawn into his large-scale paintings through direct eye-contact with the animal, an intimate moment for the viewer to contemplate their existence within nature.
