I've long been a great admirer of the woodblock print art of Japanese master Hokusai, in particular his Great Wave of Kanagawa.
On an extended trip up the east coast of Australia in mid-2019, I popped in on Byron Bay for a few days, where I reacquainted myself with the coastline and culture of the place. Byron is a great place to surf, but there are several other attractions in the area too. Its headland is the most easterly part of the Aussie mainland, so when the sun rises each day, the summit of nearby Mt Warning is the first piece of Oz to receive a ray of light, making it a popular night-time ascent. Whales migrate close by in season, and dolphins can be spotted all year around. The lighthouse on the scenic headland makes a worthwhile visit too.
In this drawing I've tried to incorporate the lot, to include these aspects of life in Byron Bay, but in the Japanese style of the great artist we're all familiar with, on one level or another.
All prints are produced from high quality scans that use embedded colour profiles to ensure that the print colours are as true as possible to the original artwork. The prints are archival quality, using the giclee printing process on 310gsm cotton rag paper that is acid-free and lignin-free.
Please note that colours may vary from what you see on your screen or computer monitor. This is due to the fact that every screen or monitor has a different capability to display colours and that we all see these colours differently.
