There were Orcas in the Channel a few days ago – Tasmania

40cmx30cm acrylic on birch panel 2015 Private collection

Little roads run down to the D’Entrecasteaux Channel from the Channel Highway at Middleton in southern Tasmania, with Bruny Island on the far side. I set myself up on a very quiet roadside to make this painting of the Channel through eucalypts. Cars never use that particular bit of road …. I had to move for three.

On the other hand, Orcas sometimes visit the Channel and I heard that some had been seen recently. Unfortunately they didn’t appear to have their portrait painted, which is why you don’t see any.
