Original Creation

The swimming basin.

16 Oct 2022

‘The Basin’ is the partially rock protected swimming area at our now local beach where we have holidayed with the kids for the last 35-odd years when we lived out west & then down south. The view is from the units where we stayed; and where the remaining family from Toowoomba still come up to for holidays. This specific painting was at the request of that family to hang on their wall. It is painted in oil using MJS techniques on a 16x12" canvas. Enjoy.



Incredibly pretty! You nailed it!

Really nice Dave, love to visit your beautiful country but alas i don't enjoy flying and you are on the other side of the globe.

Wow the flowers and the path on the left with shadows are incredible. Honestly the whole thing looks like a photograph, well done!

Terrific! A lot of depth. Great trees, and all of those little flowers!

Thank you Pam, Jeff, Terry and Nancy for your great comments. I was aiming for photorealism with (dare I say) some degree of artistic addition. It does indeed look a lot like the photo I took and painted from. Cheers.

It really does look like a picture. I hope someday I can be that good! How long have you painted for?

Fantastic Dave! It looks like a photo!

Thank you Nancy and Brian for the great compliment. Nancy, I only started 2 years ago - October 2020, Cheers
