I was inspired to capture the Collaroy sea pool on Sydney’s Northern Beaches because of the afternoon light reflection on the water and rain storm on the horizon. The painting uses a blue palette with use of silver and grey to pick up on the wet edges of the concrete pool.
This artwork title was selected in memory of receiving a painting by numbers set on my eighth from Nan and Gran. The alternative title for this acrylic was “Numbers Game”, with a specific focus on the number one. In the painting you will notice a solitary sailing boat on the horizon located above the stenciled white and black number one on the pool.
The artwork comes ready to hang and is being sold framed in an off white and charcoal grey and white flecked frame. The water in the pool has been varnished in three coats of acrylic varnish to characterise the water reflection with the pool edge. The horizon and sky has been left unvarnished to further highlight the light reflection in the pool.
