Mixed Media on Paper

Arden Street traverses Coogee Beach with steep inclines. In this view south the beach is hidden but it provides a good outlook on the urban texture of the area. There are proposals at present to redevelop Coogee Bay Hotel with a higher building. From this angle it is clear a taller building would change the present built density and probably the feel of the area as a whole. In this painting I enjoyed making playful marks to define the buildings and particularly the exposed electricity wires.
