Most Australians live near the coast so going to the beach is a popular leisure activity. I live on the Gold Coast so I regularly paint sun surf and sand.
I love the human form; this piece shows a local sun loving species in its natural habitat. Two figures are revelling in the sun, soaking up its warmth; his face is turned toward the sun however she is obeying Australia’s slip, slop and slap slogan and wears a hat to shade her face.
Do you feel their languid repose as they nearly melt into the sand – life’s a beach!
