Study for the illustration 'Exercise near Hume Camp NSW'. Depicts a truck with several men standing/sitting nearby, at Hume Camp, Albury, New South Wales.
Stylistically 'Exercise near Hume Camp NSW' shows influences of friend and colleague Donald Friend. Spending much time together in Albury they provided each other with feedback as well as shared material. In this work the broad areas of colour layered over extensive the pen work shows likenesses to an earlier series of drawings sent to the artist by Friend. Drysdale was so taken with the illustrations by Friend that he bought one for himself.
