Mullet Creek

THREE WATERCOLOURS AND AN Lake Illawarra and Mullet Creek

A superb Easter Monday was put to good use with a fishing/painting outing to Lake Illawarra. As Peter snooped around the western shores of the lake, looking for bait fish, I painted Gosseberry Island, in oils.
Interesting times on the edge of the lake, so many people about and so happy to chat...I have never encountered such chatty passer-bys. It was diffecult to concentrate fully on the task at hand. We did get a good tip for better fishing further inland at a beautiful park in Brownesville, on the edge of Mullet Creek, so we headed off. The William Beach Park (champion skuller you know, from the 1800s, trained in Mullet Creek) is a great spot at the southern end of Kembla Grange golf course.. Beautiful vistas, mullet the size of sharks leaping out of the water, barbeque cookers, kiddies play equipment, dogs with jaws the size of hippos off leash at every turn, we stayed till after dark.
Three water colours resulted from Mullet Creek...

 This is the view I was painting...and the creek Peter was fishing...
Did I mention the chatty people? Very friendly audience at Mullet Creek, I have never had so many viewings!
