Pastel on Colourfix sanded paper (Terracotta) – 70cm x 50cm
I did this pastel painting in 2006 after a camping trip to Hughes Creek which is in the Tarcombe area of Northern Victoria. A huge thunderstorm came across and gave us a good soaking!!!! I was captivated by the starkness of the dead tree against the darkness of the navy blue sky.
I was greatly honoured when this painting was acquired by a water company – (the Goulburn Catchment Management Authority) to present as an award.
