Tide on the turn

74cmx60cm acrylic on cotton canvas 2016 Private collection

The surface of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel between mainland southern Tasmania and Bruny Island is forever changing, sometimes covered with streaks and curves and dimples and areas of glassy stillness all at once.

Titanium white paint used in the pale yellow sky allows this painting to glow when ambient light is low.
