A little plein air painting made on an uninhabited island off the Queensland coast looking towards the Whitsunday Islands.
After an early morning swim looking into the glare of an overcast sky.
Many of my wave paintings like this one are based on photographs that I take with a small waterproof camera while swimming. This one makes the Coogee SLSC clubhouse appear to be threatened by a big wave. As I was making this painting a few weeks after I took the photo there was an intense low pressure system off the east coast of Sydney and big waves caused one of the clubhouse walls to collapse.
