Desert landscape

The artist – Russell Drysdale – was interested in looking at the landscape and the harshness of life in the centre of Australia, and often painted desert scenes.

  • Travel into the dusty, hot desert.
  • Notice the colours Drysdale uses to depict the dry desert. List the colours you can see. Are any of them unusual?
  • Imagine you were suddenly dropped into this landscape. How would you feel? Write a story about your adventure.
