My 18 beaches art challenge

After living on the Northern Beaches for 2 years and the beaches being the inspiration for most of my paintings, I realised I had only painted 4 of them, and there are 18!

I live in Dee Why and this is the beach I have painted the most but also Freshwater, Curl Curl and Whale Beach. It is my mission in the next 12 months to paint the remaining 14. And not only paint them but visit, sketch, really study and observe and find the best possible angle and composition. I would love to share my journey so I am starting an art blog and hoping to exhibit my 18 paintings at the end.

Here are a few snippets of my painting process and the work I’ve done so far.
