WIMMERA SERIES 5 – St Mary’s Lake or Dad’s View by Suzy Strout
2019 Finalist Waverley Art Prize.
St Mary’s Lake in the Wimmera more often than not has no water in it…..but as we drove around this time, it was full and beautifully picturesque. Mt Arapiles was in the background of almost every view.
I wanted to contrast its soft colour with the reflections in the still water whilst still emphasising the dry vegetation and especially the River Red Gums. Using acrylic paints on board allowed me to paint freely, to rub back and to dry brush, to create this impressionistic view.
