Hello Bridget, That was a very pleasant surprise to see your name here as this particular painting has not created any interest, it has been here for over a year. This beach is in a World heritage area and is stunning,but I don't think I have done justice to it. Thanks for stopping by, I do appreciate it. Warm regards, Nyra

Hello Loretta, Thanks for your comments. I love doing rocks, am working on on at the moment from around the same area- more rocks! My pleasure to invite you to the group. I see you have a cat- we are very much alike then. We have the most loved, pampered puss on this earth! Warm regards, Nyra~

Simply beautiful Nyra, love the lighting - the sort of beach you could stay on for hours, just watching the waves lapping ! big hug leonora x

Hello Leonora, You are right it is the sort of beach you want to stay on for hours, unfortunately I have not walked on it, only looked down on it from a lookout, my son took this photo. It is a cross country hike and a challenging one to get there. Gary goes surfing all around the island, so I rely on him for photos of beaches that I am never likely to visit. This is not a surfing beach, but he happened to be in the area. Big hug x Nyra,

Many thanks Svitlana, you are correct that it is a beautiful landscape, but I have not justice to it's full beauty, it needs to be a panoramic shot as the beach curves round..

Hello Nyra when I saw this I thought it was a new one and am so pleased to see that it is getting so many lovely comments now. This is really a lovely painting and well done on the front rocks. Warm regards Cyril

Happy Easter Cyril and thank you for commenting. ! Yes this is a "recycled" one. I should do a panoramic version of it as this does not do justice to the beach.Imagine what you could do with it, with your skill and pastels!! I am back working on my beach series and will have a couple to upload very soon. Warmest regards my friend, Nyra

Delighted to see your beautiful seascape, Nyra. It is a superb painting. Hope all goes well with you. Happy Easter.

Hello Peter, this is not a new one, just one I have recycled from the gallery, This beach has been listed on Lonely Planet as one of the most beautiful in the world. Take care and hope you have a wonderful Easter too. We have warm, balmy weather which is very unusual, but we are not complaining!.. Warmest regards, Nyra

Beautiful Nyra, it may not be new, but it deserves another spell in the spotlight. It is a beautiful painting, the light you have captured on the hills in the background, and the sparkle in the water, and the wonderful colour of the water makes this a scene I would love to be able to step into. Fond regards, John

Always lovely to hear from you Barbara, glad you like this one, I have just uploaded another beach scene, it is on the same coast as this beach. I wish I lived closer to them as it is a lovely part of Tasmania. Warm regards, Nyra

Artist Statement
for Nyra Aherne
Nyra AherneI hope through my paintings of Tasmania that I will encourage my artist friends to come and see the beauty of the state for yourselves. Unfortunately because we are so small with a population of just over 510,000 in the whole state, we are inclined to get forgotten and overseas visitors flock to the big mainland cities and miss our natural beauty.

One of my biggest challenge to paint is clouds. I've tried several techniques and am rarely completely satisfied. Any suggestions?
