Late afternoon - Semaphore











Not only is it late afternoon but a rain storm approaches too!
This view is from the Largs Jetty looking toward the Semaphore jetty, a beautiful stretch of beach to walk especially in cool conditions. It's a great vantage point to watch storms come over the gulf.

Painting outside

As part of the warm-up for next year's Fleurieu Art Prize (the world's richest landscape prize) the organisers arranged for two one-day paitning competitions. I attended the second one based at Victor Harbor. It was a great day with some 70 artists converging to paint during the day then judging in the evening, and with works for sale.













I secured a shady spot near the beach to paint from.
The paintings is acrylic on linen 100x75cm
