The track to Dead Horse Gap. Back in Sydney, reviewing last week’s work and missing the mountains.

Light across the Land. It’s why I paint.

The complete picture. I posted some details of this piece earlier this week during our stay at Depot Beach. Looking from the deck of our cabin through the trees to the ocean was just one small aspect of the view that caught my eye. I’ve made several changes, having looked at it every day as we’ve travelled south and now finally feel happy with it. That balance between the brightness of the sea beyond versus the detail still pushing through in the trees, branches and foliage. Knocking back the distant headland. Who doesn’t love a glimpse through to the ocean?

Upright Point. High up looking down through the trees. The session started precariously when I set up to close to the edge, my bag tipped over and the contents tumbled towards the edge, both water pots going over. No water pots, no painting so I had to take a pathway to the bottom and then start climbing up the cliff searching amongst bushes. The artists life.

That moment when the sun’s last warmth throws a pink smile across the bay. And still managed a shimmer. Boats, jetties and oyster fields. Somewhere on the NSW coast.

Tides are like the rhythm of time itself. 🔴Delighted that ROCK POOLS LITTLE BEACH is off to a new home in northern New South Wales. Thank you so much to the buyer. I’m heading south to the Sapphire Coast on Sunday and be looking out for some more rock pools locations.
