Artist's Description

All over Australia, people are waiting for drought to break, to see those welcome rain clouds on the horizon. Artist Al Benge has produced this topical sketch to illustrate the subject.
Al comments….Living in a rural area of Queensland gives me the opportunity to observe as an artist, the effects of the drought on surrounding farmland. At the moment, it is brown and parched, but at dusk, blue shadows creep across the landscape. I sketched this scene just down the road from where I live, and used a pen and ink, plus splatter technique to convey the dry terrain. The windmill and tank gave a focus in the mid-distance to the composition.
