Naranna Springs - Flinders Ranges by 

Pastel on Colourfix paper – 70cm x 50cm

I did this pastel painting following a trip to the Flinders Ranges a few years ago. This had all the elements I love – water, a nice mix of warm and cool colours and a challenge (i.e. getting the ‘look’ of shallow water)!!

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.

    Beautifully painted and yes you achieved what you set out to do and that is to get the ‘look’ of shallow water. I just adore the native colours. I wonder if it still looks like this now.

  • Thanks Noelene. I also wonder if it looks like this now! Would love to get back there one of these days – it is a fantastic area to paint.

    I will pop over tomorrow for a couple of days . ;=)

  • I am having a good chuckle here Irene! I will pick you up at Tullamarine Airport – what time? Only problem is, we don’t have very much water around here at the moment – but I’m sure we can find some! Perhaps it would be better if I came over and we made a trip to Cardiff!!!!!!
