The Bridge at Euroka by Lynda Robinson

Pastel on Colourfix sandpaper (burgundy) 50cm x 50cm

This painting was a commission. It was not easy!!!! The rather incongruous looking gate going nowhere is to stop the stock going over the bridge and I would have preferred to leave it out but my client wanted it included.

  • Thanks for a great comment Michael. I wanted to leave the gate out but my client insisted that it had to be included!

    Oh my goodness, the water reflection is unbelievable! How on earth……?
    The tree trunk is beautiful too Lynda and I’m really glad you explained the presence of the gate!

  • LOL! I can tell you I was really tearing my hair out a few times with this one Colombe! The tree had some ‘difficult’ colours in it and it was really hard to get it to stand out against the sky. The water reflections were EASY compared to the rest of it!

    hehe, I know how you feel, I am in the process of doing a commission at the moment, the lady liked the isolation of a particular painting she saw in my exhibition in Mooloolaba, but she wanted some of her elements in the painting, so much so that, hey, there is no more isolation, it is full of stuff!!!

  • LOL! The customer is always right Michael!

    Oh, Lynda, another masterpiece, my friend!!! When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a beautiful photograph – and then I spied how the colors in the water looked, and, sure ‘nuf, it was yours! I love to just sit and “drool” over your paintings! Bill was looking at one of them the other day and said, "Wouldn’t it be fun if we could just go to one of these beautiful places and see it in person?!" See, your tourism department is already at work! And I love your new avatar!

  • Ha Ha! Pat – you are such a joy! Thank you for this wonderful comment, and you and Bill are welcome Down Under any time!

    Lynda, your work never ceases to impress, another brilliant piece, the water really is sublime. I like the gate there because it’s real and it’s the way things have to be done on farms, for practicality, not aesthetics, though it really adds t rather than detracts from the image. :-)

  • Great to hear from you Matt. (Sorry for the slow response – been a bit busy)! You are absolutely right about the practicality of farm life so I feel much better about the gate now. Great comment.

    I am very admirative on this one, Lynda..you are definitely the queen of the reflections on the water ! they are so very well done that it seems it is a photo taken ! and you are right about the gate, it must have been nothing there after this adorable little bridge.
    Anyway the whole pastel is a treat for the eye

  • Thank you for your wonderful comment Corinne. I did this from the client’s own photograph and he wanted it replicated as closely as possible, so in view of your comment, it was a success!
