Sydney to Great Ocean Road - Part 2 On the Road

Brunswick Street, Fitroy, Melbourne

Leaving Melbourne we stayed overnight at Torquay and next morning headed out through Barwon Heads.

Barwon Heads is well known in Australia as it was the main filming site for the popular TV series Sea Change, and more recently where Cadel Evans (the 2011 Tour de France winner) has a home.

Spent the second night at the Grand Pacific Hotel. 140 years old & it is a gem from the past with great atmosphere, super upper viewing balconies and big rooms with high ceilings. It just oozes character from a bygone age.

Apollo Bay
Watercolour, Goauche, pen Pencil on watercolour paper
5.83 × 8.27 inches or 14.8  x 21 cm

As we were leaving Apollo Bay I saw this house on the edge of the bay. It reminded me of the style of the american painter Edward Hopper. Couldn't resist the cypress tree. Dont see many in Sydney but seem common around Melbourne, and in the paintings of Rick Amor.

This painting is available for sale  $95 plus $15 postage
