Light on the Howqua by Lynda Robinson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Pastel on Colourfix paper – 50cm x 35cm

Another example of my fascination with water! The Howqua River runs through the area known as the High Country which is in the Mansfield area of Northern Victoria. I did this painting (and a few others) during a camping trip a couple of years ago. The time of day here is late afternoon/early evening. The Howqua area is another truly beautiful part of Australia.

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    I too have a thing for the Howqua river … I painted my River Spryte there
    It truly is another beautiful place…. without the tourist….s

  • When we were there we didn’t see another soul for miles. We are very fortunate to have such idyllic places without crowds of people.
