Gunnamatta Sunset

My brother, Russell, gave me a photo he had taken of this dramatic sunset whilst fishing at Gunnamatta Surf Beach.  I liked the diagonal shore in his photo and wanted to recreate the reflections in that shiny bit of sand where the waves have just gone out.  I did this painting totally using the painting knife with acrylic paint – a very enjoyable experience!  This was the first time I had painted a seascape which is ironic seeing I live in Bonbeach.

About Michelle Endersby

For me painting is a journey I didn't even know I was going to embark on.  But now I have headed down the pathway which delights, amazes and sometimes frightens me, I must press on.  Mostly it is a very solitary pursuit, but the encouragement, advice and generosity from fellow travellers has been enlightening and heart warming.  Like Santiago in Paulo Coelho's "The Alchemist" I don't know where this journey is taking me so I am just following the signs that appear and finding my inspiration in the beauty of nature.
