Congwong Beach, near La Perouse in Sydney

Congwong Beach, near La Perouse in  Sydney
Congwong Beach, Sydney
Watercolour and gouache on watercolour paper
40 x 15 cm
Painted this one a few weeks ago before the weeks of rain set in. Another new discovery in Sydney. Been to La Perouse many times but never noticed this beautiful sheltered beach before, which is located south of Sydney on the northern entrance to Botany Bay.
My weekly sketching trips are revealing so many new places that I have never been to before in Sydney. I have become a tourist in my own town. 

I also find that having sketched a place, the image cements itself in ones head. Sketching is much better at engraining a view in ones head than taking photos.
