Finding ourselves in Burswood for this painting session we both had a successful start, then moved on to the vibrant afternoon sun cutting across the Swan river to Burswood Park, back to familiar territory!

Finding ourselves in Burswood for this painting session, we started at the secluded Cracknell Park, with a nice jetty for fishers and some calm waters, once the day warmed up we moved further downriver to Balburk Reserve and battled the wind!!

An early start found us on Kuljak Island in Ascot where we found tranquil water and a rare setting full moon - interesting painting day
