About the Painting
The lookout is located to the south and overlooks the resort in the middle of the island and the northern residential headland. The closer white tower is the Whitsunday Apartments and the yellow tower behind it is the Reef View Hotel. Catseye Bay is on the right and Hamilton Island Marina is located on the further side of the island. Across from the marina is Dent Island. The paler blue island on the horizon is the Australian coastline.
I completed this painting without instruction or tutorial, working from far to near. After an evening spent sketching, I started on the sky, the ocean, then painted in the islands. The most difficult part was adding the final details and creating the foliage I wanted to capture. Then I painted in the buildings and the lookout last. I had a great time working on the rocks! Finally, Mirabella and Lincoln appeared, followed by their park bench. Shadows and final details completed this paining.

Art is a new love of mine. I love creating vibrant, visual pieces of art to brighten up my - and other peoples! - home. While I've always loved being creative with words and dance, I've never been a visual artist. But now, I'm so excited to be exploring this new hobby.
