The Barrier Reef


Alison's Sketchercise took her for a swim near the Great Barrier Reef. While spending time in this uniquely beautiful place she took the time to paint and send me a postcard. I feel very special. You can see by the intense color that this is deep clear and clean water. Not something you see every day. I have lived near the coast all of my life but this is not color you see in my part of the world.  I think you have to be under the water for this kind of color. My camera has not done the colors justice but still it is a remarkable painting.  I will treasure this beauty, thank you, Alison.

Amazing - I never thought we'd get an underwater postcard from the Barrier Reef when this project started!

This is just lovely! I used to live off the coast of the Great Barrier Reef in the Tropics. Yes, everything is coloured intensely and vibrantly.

Gorgeous colours and shapes, what a contrast to Charlene's swimming postcard in the previous post. And another place I just have to get to some day!

Even in this wide-ranging series of postcards, Alison's dazzling painting is unique! What a treat for the vast majority of us who never get into such settings.

Stunning and vibrant and so true to the underwater experience. The painting is a tropical holiday for the eyes.
