My inspiration

A Pilbara sunset is unmistakeable.  As dusk approaches, the sky on the horizon turns a vivid mix of oranges and the local saltworks is brightly lit by the last of the sun's rays.  In this painting I wanted to capture the moment at high tide when the salt ponds fill with sea water and everything above is perfectly reflected in the still shallows. I used a mix of techniques, heavily blending the sky and water to create a subtle transition of colours and a looser drawing style for the salt and landscape.  As a result, the salt is illuminated further by its surroundings.
