This was the view across the front lawn of my flat, when I lived on The Esplanade at Christies Beach. I produced this pastel on-site, directly from the scene in one session. The windows that were a little open and reflecting the colours of the sky belonged to another flat in the block where I lived. My flat's windows would have been directly to my right. The white shapes next to the sea water were small craft being set up and launched from a boat ramp, just out from the sailing club (shown as a shed-like building, behind the open window at the back). The dark red brown block was a small brick structure where our letterboxes were.
