Local Waters

“I chose the title partly for its connection to our geographic location here in WA and for the ways it appears in numerous forecasts. In addition, it gives me the flexibility to choose my references. These are the digital photographs I take on my outings around our Local Waters. With the leaps in data storage my references are intensely detailed and the challenge is to distil and retain the essence that will make my works memorable paintings.” —Leigh Hewson-Bower, 2023
