Rivers and tributaries in the top end spread and collect water from across the flood plains. This small arm reaching up into the floodplain covered with scattered saltbush had some amazing detail created as the water from the high tide drained back into the Adelaide River. Getting the creek coming from the corner was a bit tricky but eventually I ended up with the composition I was chasing.
This artwork is very literal in many ways. The East Alligator River is a tidal river that relies heavily on the surrounding floodplains, to feed back in to the main river system. As the floodplains drain, they create little creeks leading into the river, which moves baitfish off the floodplains and into the East Alligator, which then Barramundi and other marine life feed off. Without the floodplains and seasonal rains, these creeks wouldn't be formed and would not allow for the cycle of life to continue. It would simply become lifeless.
