Further information

This gouache is from the 'Hillside and hummock in the landscape' series of 1965-67. It was painted at Upwey the year following Williams' return from Europe where he had been on the Helena Rubinstein Scholarship. The image draws directly on the hilly landscapes of Fern Tree Gully and Lysterfield, not far from his home at Upwey. The arc of the hillside as horizon is the dominant element of the landscape in Hillock, accentuated further by the painted pink and blue sky, which is, unusually, more illustrative.
