This will be my second painting of Monkey Mia. The painting is in progress, in this video you can see what bold decisions I need to take when creating an aerial painting. The first painting was made from memory. I got worried towards the end that as I hadn't been to that area of Western Australia since I was 5 years old I could be completely wrong. My husband and I then took a trip to make sure and refresh my memory of the colours and the light. We hired a helicopter and flew over Shark Bay in thee north. Incredibly it was just as I had remembered. This painting is a more daring version, I look forward to finishing it when I get back to Australia next month.
