I’ve put the painting part of this on hold, but as I went for a swim beneath the Burleigh Headland yesterday, I walked to the left instead of my usual and found a new perspective. The view takes in the hinterland to ocean view right across the Tallebudgera River and Bridge to the mouth of the river.

I’ll walk the path again and sketch it after the rains this week and see if that gives a better representation of erosion.

LOW TIDE: update

I was progressing well on this painting and just needed a final layer before the final glazings and I was happy with it all except for the map area (not shown).  I had to do more research on maps to make sure I represented a tricky area faithfully.

Then I found a notice about Tasmania’s Glover Prize. I wanted to enter that competition for years, but I found out I don’t need to actually be there to enter. With a January 25 2019 deadline, I decided to go for it.  More under other Posts.

I’ve put ‘Low Tide’ aside for a month or two. Don’t worry I won’t forget it.
