Point Lonsdale Peir
8" x 10" - Original Oil on Geso Board 2012
Point Lonsdale is an often visited place for local artists and generally they all paint the lighthouse. I have painted it myself a number of times. Just around the corner however is the Point Lonsdale peir which has a great view across the rip. This painting was painted on location ... it was low tide and I found a small cave in the rocky cliff face to set up in out of the wind. The sun was just coming up adding a nice warm glow to everything.
