Point Walter Jetty original plein air oil painting on aluminium by Ben Sherar

Now that the weather has warmed up a little here in Perth, Kiya Kalem and I took the opportunity to get a spot of  Plein air painting in at popular Point Walter in Melville. We got stuck in just before the weather turned, back to winter for a few hours it seems!

My finished piece “Point Walter Jetty” is Oil on Aluminium, 30×21.5cm and is available now – Contact me to enquire!

A great location for picnics, swimming and fishing with a cafe and playground to boot! The local name for this place is Dyoondalup and it has a rich history as a gathering point for families to relax and enjoy lazy afternoons. A favourite is walking out on “The Spit” sandbar into the middle of the Swan River (with a secret deep water place to the west being a great spot for local Mulloway fishermen).

My latest exhibition is a joint show with fellow oil painters Kiya Kalem and Peter Barker.

This joint exhibition takes us on an exploration of our vast Australian land from the ground, through the mist up to the wide open skies. We invite you to drop in to this iconic Fremantle hotel and take in the new bodies of work we have put together.

Open 11am to late Wednesday the 4th of September at The National Hotel Fremantle, this dynamic exhibition is on show until November 4th
