Cochrone Lagoon, Copacabana

51 x 73cm Watercolour on Mounted Watercolour Paper


Unfortunately, an infuriating cold and uncomfortably strong south westerly, winter wind

was blowing, irritatingly, tunneling up the lagoon on 25th June 2016, offering difficult conditions.

The first of two paintings commenced on the day, this landscape, looking south to

Mourawaring Headland from the Cochrone Lagoon entrance, at Copacabana and

MacMasters Beach, was executed during '5 Lands Art in the Open', a subsidiary

plein air painting activity of 'The 5 Lands Walk' on the NSW Central Coast.

The final touches were applied on later days in my home studio.
