Limited edition print (200). Watercolour area 416 x 279 mm. This painting was made in 2012 on the Indian ocean island of Mauritius.

This was my first attempt at public sketching in Mauritius, in Trou aux biches, close to where I lived. There are always a few fishermen waiting patiently near the reef. It strikes me as proof that there are probably no sharks around.
I very much enjoyed the experience of painting this, and it led me to venture ever further from home. The water was a perfect clear turquoise blue and the waves lapped gently at the rocks. A peaceful scene.
