Sydney's Fisherman's Beach & Longreef Point is a favourite of mine to visit on a bright & sunny day. You can walk up to the top of the point & watch hang gliders & whales migrating either North or South as well as surfing. On a clear day you can follow the coastline with its many beaches & headlands as far as the eye can see.

I carry a pocket sketch pad and use it like a camera to record the scene as the basis for the painting at home.

Similarly for The Old 'Newnes Hotel' a historic building in a long abandoned mining town in a beautiful valley. I used artistic licence to include the cliffs opposite in the background.
