'Silverton Creek' by Lynda Robinson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Pastel on Colourfix sanded paper (dark blue) 70cm x 50cm

Silverton Creek has been painted thousands of times by many artists, and this is my version! The town of Silverton is just on the edge of outback Australia and up the road a bit from the mining town of Broken Hill. The whole area is such an interesting place to visit. It is an artist’s paradise!!! As you can see there is absolutely NO water in the creek, but the eucalypt trees throughout the creek area are simply magnificent.

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.

    You’ve got a wonderful composition in this piece, with beautiful flowing lines, and, as usual, it’s expertly rendered.

  • Thank you Doug. The colours in this area of Australia are so bright and clear because the atmosphere is so pure. I want to go back there sometime.

    Another thing I have noticed by studying this gorgeous painting specifically is the way you pick the most dramatic parts of the day to paint. ( which makes sense ) The sun seems to be fairly low in the sky to make all those wonderful shadows you “paint” so well. Fantastic trees….and the light on the bark just makes their “gnarliness” stand out. You have opened my eyes about Australia…..and all it’s beauty. Amazing work Lyndy.

  • Wow – this is another great comment from you Kate! The time was late afternoon for this one, so still quite bright and sunny in this part of the world. What a wonderful thing to say about your eyes being opened about Australia!!! I am very flattered. (I will educate you about the ‘footy’ later)!
