“Darling River Tree Study 1” Original 9 x 5 Oil Painting – Framed


One of a set of four traditional 9 x 5 tree studies from the banks of the Darling River in outback New South Wales. The site of these paintings, Dead Mans Point, near the ruins of long gone old Tintinallogy townsite has a fascinating history.

This stretch of river on Viewmont Station near the ruins of old Tintinallogy happened to host the grave of one ill fated Thomas Young who met his death via poisoning at this location in 1920. The charming station owner told me that it is believed when dealing with the body, the coroner cut off the dead man’s head so as to return it…

So with all this history and outback charm surrounding me and having just absorbed inspiration from all the Australian Landscape Painting activity in nearby Broken Hill, I put down a group of four 9 x 5 plein air oil studies.
