Cnr Nairn St & Pakenham St, Fremantle WA
October 2022

” Standing over two storeys tall, this bold fishing harbour scene beams through the old heritage-style open windowed walls of a first floor apartment. Her vivid blues can be seen from as far as each end of Pakenham Street, reflecting off of the adjacent full length glass windows.

The wonderful client Bill wanted to capture a piece of the local Fremantle fishing industry, going about it’s atmospheric day-to-day activity. Growing up around the fishing harbours and wharfs in Scotland, he has a story to tell about every element of this painting, including the cormorants and seagulls.

Grab a coffee at #ghettoblastercafe across the road for a front row seat and take her all in. Bill will also happily accommodate viewing visits if you catch him.

10 days of painting, and 1 day of prep.
I had an absolute blast creating this, learnt some new perspectives, gained some muscle – I can wrangle scaffolding better than ever now. Thankful the rain mostly stayed away too. “
