Marengo Sunrise by Lynda Robinson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Pastel on Colourfix paper – 70cm x 50cm

A walk on the beach on a warm summer morning at about 6.00 a.m. revealed these amazing clouds and colours. There was absolutely not another soul around, so I had the opportunity to sit undisturbed and make colour notes as well as take a few photos for later reference.

Note: for George Sanderson – your birds have migrated!!!!!

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.

    The golden clouds are scurring across the gentle breeze
    The sun will warm the day with growing ease
    My soul will never miss
    The love of our first kiss
    For it echoes in the million ways we please

    Each morning we shall wake together
    And travel the journey in all weather
    Our life will show the bliss
    Of each and every kiss
    For our souls desire love’s eternal teather

    I will forever walk beside you
    And you shall always hold my hand
    Nothing will ever come between me and you
    As we travel across this life’s land

    Softly seagulls cry as they scrable for their feed
    Gentle crolching sounds of waves escaping out to sea
    My heart knows bliss
    On shores like this
    When you walk the morning sands with me
