Tin Can Bay is a great place to paint, surrounded by nature and quiet waterways with no distractions.    A favourite anchorage is the South White Cliffs on the western side of K’Gari (Fraser) Island with its mangroves and tea trees on the foreshore.    Here’s a preview of the Life in the Shallows, the underpaintings and small works on paper (click here to see the finished paintings – now Sold).
