Artist's description:

This is one of a series of paintings and drawings that were done on Laem Tong Beach, Phi Phi Island, Thailand. It was painted “en plein air” from under the shade of some trees on a very hot and humid tropical day. On this day the haze and fog had cleared to reveal the beautiful Bamboo Island with its incredibly rugged cliffs, bays and secluded beaches. I wanted to show this and the many different ocean tones of blues and greens and the shadowy coral. Painting outside adds many new unforeseen elements to the experience of making art, not least heat, bugs, wind and ever changing light. As I was doing this picture the weather changed and a storm came. It brought really strong winds as you can see from the angle of the cloth tassels on the front of the Longtail boat, which were vertical when I started the picture and horizontal as I finished! Actually, I just about finished painting the boat and had to pack everything away really quickly and run back to our room to avoid a very heavy tropical rain and thunderstorm from soaking me and this picture! Phew!
