65.5 cm x 50.5 cm, oil paints on stretched paper.
Date produced: 1986 - 1987, while living at Christies Beach (1986-1987).
Painted entirely on-site, at Witton Bluff, Christies Beach, S.A. I spent many afternoons working on this painting, out on-site. I found these particular cliffs themselves to be very rich and striking. The glow of the cliffs made the sky look very rich and quite deep in colour.
I took a photograph of the cliffs (shown below) from a similar spot to where I was sitting to do this painting, but at a slightly earlier time in the afternoon. I know that I was surprised by the result - that film seemed to see or be sensitive to the relationships of the tones in the cliff quite differently to the receptors in my eyes (shouldnt have been surprising really).
