Beginnings of Coochie-water edge

Today I’ve started a painting that I’d like to enter into the Redlands Art Show. Taking my inspiration from the little bay island, Coochiemudlo, I’ve painted the initial layer of bright colour. I’ve visited this island many times…it’s a short ferry ride from Victoria Point. Coochie is a tiny island and easy to walk around, and surprisingly diverse in natural habitats for its size. I’m taking my idea from the western side facing the mainland where the cliffs and rocks are red pumice stone, and the water is clear. There’s often a lovely bright light on this side of the island and I’m aiming to capture that brightness and the vivid colour that accompanies it.
