Artwork Description

Oil on canvas

Signed on the front.

Raining on and off here at Airlie Beach, and I headed down to the beach in between showers to do this little piece earlier this week. The plaque next to where was painting informs us that

‘On the 3rd of June 1770, Captain James Cook sailed the Endeavour through what is now known as the Whitsunday Passage. They sailed through on ‘Whit Sunday,’ marking the Sunday of the feast for the Christian festival Pentecost *. Captain Cook was inspired enough to name the passage as Whitsunday Passage, and the location as the Whitsunday Group of Islands. At that time, the international date line had not been established, so the day that the Whitsundays was discovered was actually a Monday. So really they should be called the “Whitmonday” islands!’

* note…at Pentecost, they all wear white vestments..

A clearly spectacular place is Airlie Beach……absolutely packed with tourists, and it doesn’t help that it’s also school hols! Very grey day, but that and the moisture in the air helped pull the colours in the painting together. A fun little daubing, and the first to be completed on the trip so far. There are several others on the go, but they are bigger, and not complete yet. Off to Townsville tomorrow, but only stopping overnight en route to Cairns,where I will stay longer and get some more painting done.😊
