Riverbed D is one of the last paintings that Williams made, shortly before his death. It combines a sparse composition with his use of the course of a river through the landscape, already seen in the earlier Dry Creek Bed series. The restraint of representation is balanced by the interplay between surface and image, also seen in a contemporary series of red desert paintings made at Pilbara.
