Painting trip to Tasmania - Day4

In the morning, I went to Bicheno beach. I saw these boats yesterday and thought I would try from this spot. 


The trouble was, it was very windy, more like a gale force, and it was difficult to paint. I didn't want to give up, so, this is a quick sketch. I spent 2 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

When I moved in the accommodation, the lady asked me if I'm interested in opening a salon in town. That's because it's for sale for a while, and her favourite hairstylist wants to go back to Launceston. 
So, I decided in the afternoon to check it out. 
The salon 'Fig' is a tiny but charming place. I had a great chat with the owner Greg. He's really an interesting guy. Am I tempted to make a big move?

There's a gallery next door, and again, I had a lovely chat with the owner Vanessa. Very kind. 

Three minute drive took me to The Gulch. You can have the very best Fish&Chips here. Grilled Flathead!

Then I further drove down to Bicheno Blowhole, and set up my easel here. 


It was very peaceful and the place is beautiful. No wind this time. 
 I wasn't sure if I put water splashes in, but eventually I did. Very difficult to paint rock formations. I spent 2.5 hours.
