View of Hallett Cove in the Morning


View of Hallett Cove in the Morning
38.5 cm x 21.5 cm, pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.
Date produced: 1988 - 1992 (while living at Glenelg).

This was produced on-site, after walking from Hallett Cove Beach railway station. I saw this hillside regularly while travelling by train between Christies Beach (a previous home) and Wingfield (work). This drawing/painting was actually done after moving to Glenelg to live.

I was especially lucky with having pale blue still, glassy gulf waters on that day. The sea was particularly calm. I was keen to capture the glow of yellows seen within the landscape.

This particular view within Hallett Cove is no more - the grassy slope (below the railway line) and distant hill are now covered with streets and new homes.
