Drought Relief by Lynda Robinson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Pastel on sanded paper (burgundy Colourfix) 70cm x 50cm

This Painting won the Painter’s In Modern Times Invitational Paint off for the 2011 ‘Painter of the Year’

This is a pastel painting. I was intrigued with the way the light was glinting on the raindrops on these eucalyptus leaves after a brief shower (which really did nothing to relieve the drought)!!!!

    you have to be in australia right? the land loves it, but often thirsts for more here..
    as koalas sing rainsongs, when they’re awake..
    you have high talent Lyndarob, i thought this was a picture.. AAAAAAAAWESOME!!
    my favourite part is the red stems, and that one blue-green leaf with smidges of red in the front :)

  • I AM in Australia! There are so many colours in eucalypts which are not obvious at first glance. Many thanks for your kind comments lily….

    ahh had to be .. the euca leaves gave you away.. we have lots around here in the Dandenongs (Melb, Vic) ..and how right you are.. they are multi coloured, people often think they are grey green, but we know, don’t we :) — wow to think koalas live on these alone..

    Your work amazes me, Lynda I can never acheive the clarity and detail with pastels, that you seem to manage effortlessly

    Thank you very much George. I love pastel. I don’t have to wash brushes and clean palettes, and I don’t have to wait for it to dry! I like being able to keep working. I would really encourage you to have another go with pastel George, and I’m sure you will become as hooked as I am!!!

    No way, are you joshing me! This is a pastel drawing, good grief girl you are amazing…..unbelieveable, I need lessons, I should bring you to Melbourne Australia and have some lessons. You are fantastic.

  • Hey Belinda – Thanks for your lovely comments! I am in fact, not very far from you (it is a small world)! I am in Seymour, just a hop and skip up the Hume Highway! I sold this work at the Camberwell Art show about 2 years ago.
