65.5 cm x 45.5 cm, oil paints on linen canvas.
Date produced: While living at West Beach, after my first exhibition (1984-1986).
Painted entirely on-site, just outside the drive-in theatre, West Beach. I wanted to try to capture the majestic glow of sunlight on the fine foliage of the pines. The tones within the fence in front of the trees are very important for establishing the overall key within the image.
I needed to return to the same viewpoint at the same time over many days to complete this painting.
