Acrylics on birch panel 40cm h x 30cm w


This is my first painting on a timber panel (birch), something I have been looking forward to trying for some time; the surface was very satisfying to work on. It was begun while I sat on a little road running down to The Esplanade at Middleton, Tasmania, and evolved the rest of the way in the studio. Just while I was working on it Orcas were spotted in the Channel, although I didn't see them. I love how even when you can't see them, wild creatures are living in and passing through these waters.
