Elisabeth Cummings is one of Australia’s finest artists and a national living treasure. In this film, Elisabeth gives a rare up-close view of her creative approach to painting in the field. Elisabeth is overlooking a dry river bed at Fowlers Gap, north-west of Broken Hill in outback NSW. She plays with the forms of the sandy creek bed, the tall gums, red dirt and rocks, native grasses, the distant hills. The playful and decisive mark making is a joy to watch - it’s as if Elisabeth lives and breathes paint. What emerges on the board is both evocative of the place, and a singular artistic vision. Towards the conclusion, Elisabeth gives a rare on camera interview.
