A scene from a walk I did along Tidal River at Wilsons Prom in Victoria Australia. There are many places to paint along this amazing Australian River, and this is one spot I liked.

It’s a fantastic place to take to the walking tracks. with its rugged coastline scenery its awe inspiring and each and every corner you take is asking to be painted. If you get a chance, I Would Thoroughly recommend that you go there and enjoy the fantastic coastline that Victoria has to offer. Wilson Promontory would be one of my favourite National Parks.>

I thought it was about time I added the update to this oil painting.
My original painting lacked a focal point, so I painted one in.

My painting is missing something
My painting is missing something


Here is a focal point for my painting

Now I think my paintings composition works.
It lacked that all important center of attraction area.
I believe that the mother and child I added to the composition, now complement my finished oil painting, and it gives the eyes a place to concentrate on.

As an Australian Artist, I believe that trying to capture a small snapshot of what our natural surroundings look like is important for future generations to look back in time at. The simple beauty of a mother and small child playing in the shallow salt water inlet,can't be denied.
