Reminiscent of hot summer days, Terrigal Rockpool, instantly transports you to when you had sand in between your toes, a sticky ice block melting down your hand and the sea breeze blowing through your hair.

This moment frozen in time captures the gorgeous rich blues of the ocean as it sprays against the rocks, and the foggy figures of swimmers as they wade through the cool water. A single yellow buoy sits at the top of the composition, wafting over the waves. It draws the eye out beyond the pool, where the water seems to continue on forever.

The rockpool featured in the image is an iconic location in Terrigal, located only meters away from our beautiful gallery! It is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. It offers a shelter from the waves of the ocean. Allowing families to enjoy and play in the refreshing salt water on hot summer days.

As the summer swim season of 2018 comes to an end, the rockpool will undergo renovations. This gorgeous original en Plein air painting is a snap shot of the popular rock pool before it is transformed, making it a unique fragment of Terrigal’s history.
