Australia is well known for its beautiful beaches and seascapes which I love to paint. I was inspired to paint this beautiful view of the South Coast with the different shades of Blue. I was especially drawn to this one with the stark bare trees framing the rock beyond in the ocean.

32cm x 24cm watercolour on Arches 300gsm using my brilliant watercolour wheel.

The Sea

When your mind is cluttered and full of worry
Turn your eye to the sea… pause, do not hurry.
Relax your mind and breath in deep
Uncurl the tension it will help you sleep.

    Linda you are an absolute powerhouse of talent! This is everything a wonderful work of art should be. This has a great composition, beautiful colour and one of the most important elements in a work of art, it has a real and palpable atmosphere! Something that is HARD to make happen but sets a wonderful work apart from just a nice piece of art…..brilliant!

  • what a lovely thing to say Tahnja! …your comments are always very generous and so appreciated, I always enjoy hearing from you and I do hope you are keeping well xx
