The John McDouall Stuart Series are my interpretation of Stephen Kings sketches‚ surveyor and unofficial Artists on the John McDouall Stuart expedition across the Continent of Australia from Adelaide to Point Stuart. December 1861 – December 1862. References “John McDouall Stuart Journal and Mortlock Library‚ Adelaide”. Camp at Howell Ponds. “ Seeing a small rise on the open plain‚ a little to the north of west‚ I changed to 275 degrees and at two miles came on some fine ponds of water about one mile and a half long‚ twenty feet broad‚ and three feet and a half deep. I examined them on both sides‚ to see if they would do for a permanent camp for the party as it is a point nearer: and I think I may depend on the water lasting two months without any more rain. The natives seem to be numerous‚ for their smoke in the scrub is to seen in every direction. I name these ponds after John Howell‚ Esq.‚ of Adelaide. The John McDouall Stuart Series were destroyed in a local flash food March 2015. Limited numbered prints on Smooth Matte paper are now on offer for sale.
