In Nambung National Park, near Cervantes, a short day's drive from Perth, lies the mysterious landscape of the Pinnacles Desert. The calcified spires of limestone are ever-changing as the surrounding desert and its shifting sands buries some and exposes others. Upon each visit the viewer would be provided with a new vista. As I painted this watercolour, I kneeled in the sand with the paper before me so that I could shield it from the glaring sunlight. Even so, one could see the watercolour washes drying before your very eyes. A very bright and warm spot indeed!
