Alexander Beech

The Fisherman, Honeymoon Bay, Tasmania

oil on board
60 x 60 cm
In this painting Alexander Beech draws on 19th century and contemporary Australian landscape painting techniques to capture the sublime and idyllic seascape and coastal vista of Honeymoon Bay, situated on the east coast of Tasmania. Here, Beech depicts a transient moment in time as a figure stands at the shore and a fishing trawler drifts by, the hint of fish seen just below the surface through subtle shifts in light and colour.
