Ocean View

Someone made an inspired suggestion to Grace of putting the ocean in the Australiana billabong scene so I did that today. She's really getting the hang of the oil paint now, painting more plants, living patterns.

I've been painting a possum's nose pink and fixing her claws, as well as sketching in a powerful owl next to her in the fig tree, but photos will have to wait till next time.

Meanwhile, images of the billabong scene in progress and closeups of the plants and animals can be seen in the previous pages, most recently here. 

All the links for the Australiana mural are collected here
