Spring Afternoon - Goulburn River by 

Pastel on Colourfix paper (burgundy) – 50cm x 35cm

On a fairly blustery afternoon a couple of weeks ago I took a stroll along the banks of the Goulburn River, in an area called The New Crossing Place, armed with a sketchbook and a camera. This is the result. I was determined to catch the bright yellow wattle before it was all blown away. (Sometimes we suffer for our art! My hair kept blowing in my face and the pages of my sketchbook kept blowing over)!

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.

    My Tom was just looking at this and your “Shallows” pic and frowning – cos he kind of recognised it but wasnt sure why then I said that it was the Golburn near Seymour and he was all excited and stunned and could tell me (roughly) where our camp was in relation to the shallows perspective!
    He was born in Seymour and “our camp” was there on the Golburn (Opposite Trawool) Easter 1998 (when he was about 8 – he’s almost 19 now!) and in our campsite he lined a fire pit in stones for me to cook on! lol (Incinerate a whole leg of lamb in actually! lol)
    So there you go he recognised it too! =0þ
    Chookas! X♥X

  • I am amazed! Thank your Tom for me! I bet the leg of lamb tasted really good!!!!

    Chookas! ♥
