I have really enjoyed painting this one. Have you ever seen that light effect when the skies are dark but the sun comes through after heavy rain? That was what I was trying to ‘get’ with this painting!

I sketched out the basics awhile ago, and left it pinned to the studio wall to ‘think’ about it for awhile. I needed another painting for one of the 4 art shows I’ve entered between now and Easter! (I am such a glutton for punishment)! I finished it and framed it this afternoon!

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.

    Isn’t that the most beautiful sight after a long, hot summer, and your interpretation is stunning Lynda. Best of luck in all your exhibitions, although my suspicion is you won’t be needing any luck at all!!! :)

  • Hee Hee! I have been a painting machine for the past few weeks!!!! It is wonderful to see this sight in our area after 15 years of drought. I think Ma Nature overdid it a bit in a few other areas of Australia!!!! Now look here Ms. Hull – I will appreciate any luck you can send me! I’ve spent a blasted FORTUNE on frames, so need to sell a few to pay the framing bill!!!!

  • Thank you me dear Betty you wonderful woman you! I don’t think these leaves hold a candle to those amazing roses I saw again a few minutes ago. You are such a talent, so I really appreciate this comment from someone whose work I admire so much.

    Absolutely brilliant …my very best talented (and prolific) friend!
    Just as well you have this photo…my bet is you won’t be bringing it home after the show!

  • So glad you like it Sandra. It got the thumbs up from Pete too! LOL! I am well into another one now!!! Wish I didn’t have such a ‘social’ weekend ahead, as I would really like to be in the studio!!!

    Truly stunning work, as always Lynda. Such a “rafraîchissante” (refreshing) atmosphere you have captured here. The little droplets are amazing !
    All the best for your 4 art shows..maybe one day I’ll be able to attend one of them !

  • Wouldn’t that be wonderful if you could attend an art show! I said to Colombe awhile ago we should have one together with you in France!!!!! I know – dream on! Thanks for the great comment. I had fun doing all those raindrops!
