"Frenchmans Beach" (looking south) 75x100cms
Two beautiful oil paintings on stretch canvas from Chris Hooper have just arrived in the gallery. Recently, Chris had a small holiday in this beautiful part of the bay, and was able to take photographs and paint little studies of this area. Turquoise waters and crystal clear skies - a perfect combination. This is such a painterly subject and Chris has bought these paintings to life with masterly strokes. I love the way the light is touching the pandanus tree and rocks in the Gorge painting. The afternoon shadows in Frenchmans Beach - exquisite - you can feel the soft, cold sand!
