An original oil painting by Australian Artist, Sally West.

The composition is organic, directed by the positioning of the surfers in the waves and swimmers enjoying the beach between the surf life saving flags and patrol. Her expressive application of oil paint depicts the water currents and water depths. You can admire her representations of the waves breaking on a beach, pushing water towards the shoreline. You can also see in this larger water study the way that the water reaches the shore and finds a way back out to sea flowing downwards into deeper channels in the surf zone. These representations appear abstract up close but from afar the water paths become clear.
