After the storm

After the storm_Sketching
We have had 2 days of rain and high winds last night... So this afternoon with the rain stopped I thought I would check out the state of the beaches....
This is the beach that I visited yesterday – sketched in the car again today. I haven’t had a chance to swim there...not sure that it will clean up by the end of the week

After the storm1

This is where I have been doing my morning and afternoon swim and sketching...
This is also the beach that I had the most beautiful swimming conditions- no waves clean turquoise water....not the case anymore!

After the storm2
These are the same rocks that are now covered in SEA FOAM!!! Pity I didn’t come down this morning and see it when the foam was at a higher level. Wow!

After the storm4

There wasn’t anywhere clean for me to sketch just a few photos!


Earlier in the morning I had another tea room visit...

Still raining ... So time for morning tea ?

Time to start painting the interiors?

about time that I started sketching the interiors...after all this is my 5th visit there in a row(ie. one their opening hours!)


  1. Powerful photographs, especially after seeing your previous paintings. I was amazed when we saw the foam "invasion" on TV.

    Your recent work is also amazing! You have grown so much as an artist.

  2. I love your use of color and compositions. They flow...
    capture the beauty
