Looking to Summer, en plein-air.
I like to paint 'plein-air' when travelling in our motorhome. We have travelled north to Brisbane to inspect a mobility scooter for Bob, and have been slowly returning to Sydney with two night stopovers. Urunga is a small beach town, with an impressive harbour and mangrove tidal lakes.
This painting started in sunshine, and ended with rain! and a mad scramble back to the shore from my rocky perch. And the rain effected the 'interactivity' of the acrylic paint, as it started to run more than I intended. But as often happens, accidents can produce interesting results.
