The Old White Gum (Orminston Gorge)


The Old White Gum (Orminston Gorge) Original Oil on Canvas Board 76cm x 51cm

Robyn’s inspiration for this painting “I have been fortunate enough to visit Ormiston Gorge three or four times in my life. The last time was when I took a painting group of about 14 people 4 years ago to visit and paint the area around central Australia for thirteen days. We stayed all day at Ormiston Gorge painting, where it was semi drought at the time. The waterhole was quite low but the area was sunny and still glowed with the very unique colours that it is famous for. The white gums were iridescent with reflected light. There needs no complicated explanation for why I painted this area as its beauty and appeal is there for all to see. Wildlife abounds in the area – particularly birds and wallabies. The park is also an important fauna refuge, with the rediscovery of the Long-tailed Dunnart and the Central Rock Rat here in 1997”.
