'Beyond The Bay' | Paul McCarthy

'Beyond The Bay' | Paul McCarthy

Balls Head, a favourite haunt of mine, closely followed by Berry Island; both close; both inspiring.

 As the tangle of limbs reach across the sky, a trapeze for the local chorus of cockatoos. The scent of eucalypt fills the gentle breeze, chilled to perfection by the harbour below.

A kaleidoscope of opportunity for an artist, every direction exploding with design, colour and opportunity. I love the play of light as it splashes the trunks of the gum trees and piercing light reflects back in vivid shades of yellow, orange and purple. If I turn around the bobbing boats and movement of water borne traffic on the harbour beyond are held in visual place by recognisable landmarks forming bold static references.

An air of familiarity, yet a sense of time, place and atmosphere is what I love to capture. McCarthy
