Betty’s Beach is a small fishing “village” near Albany in southern West Australia. It hosts half a dozen fishing shacks used by fishermen and their families during the salmon season and on holiday weekends. I discovered the place whilst aimlessly driving around about three years ago and finally got back there last week on a near-perfect, warm and sunny afternoon.

I hope to do quite a few paintings from this location. Here’s the first one. At 90cm wide, it’s the widest painting I’ve done for over eight years.

You can see this painting in animated stages in my last post.
