Pastel on burgundy Colourfix sanded paper. 70cm x 50cm
Hughes Creek is a beautiful creek which flows through the Highlands area of Northern Victoria. I have spent some lovely camping trips here with my husband. He cooked the meals, I painted. What a wonderful arrangement!
This was painted towards the end of summer, a time of year that I love, when the Australian landscape turns to green and gold.
This painting won the major award ($1,000) for Best Artwork in the ‘Under Central Skies’ Tallarook Art Show 2007. It also won the People’s Choice award.
