Honeymoon Bay

Safely back in the studio after a few days at Point Hicks Lighthouse. Blessed with some good weather, I managed to make some sketches of the rocky granite coastline. This is the first painting to come out of those sketches. Pretty happy with how it turned out, and a wee nod to Samuel Peploe too.

In the same way as neolithic people painted their cave walls with successful bison hunts, so it often seems to me that painting is part wish fulfillment. If I’m in the studio painting landscapes from studies, it’s almost as good as being there.
