Below is a view of the motorhome during the day. We have been travelling through the dry outback to get to this oasis! Meet Bob and Honey!

First painting in my new travel series. "Anglesea Cliffs" is mixed media on paper. 24 x 32 cm
Bob, Honey and I are travelling along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. It's high summer, and the crowds are gone; a fabulous time to explore the lower edge of Australia.
I'm not painting plein air, but I am painting "on location". That means that I explore the landscape with a camera, and draw or paint from my best shot when I get back to our motorhome.
Plein air has become difficult, as I'm so busy caring for Bob, and dealing with the touring side. With this 'location' method, I feel that the inspiration is fresh and I am keen to get the paints out, in the comfort of my air conditioned travelling 'studio', aka motorhome, at night after the jobs are done.
