"Painted Pebbles" Oil 600x750
Walking along a beach in Tasmania
I noticed a large patch of sky blue pebbles.
It looks like that someone may have
painted the underside of their boat
and spilled the cobalt blue paint. Not
my usual type of painting but a lot
of fun.

This is a study for a larger painting

a few years ago. Must go back one day and
paint a series.
