Rottnest Island
Watercolor, 15” x 22”
by Bill Hudson

Rottnest is a seven-square-mile island resting on a bed of limestone that sits 12 miles from Perth off the western coast of Australia. It is recognized for its white-sand, crenulated beaches, and spectacular skies. About 7,000 years ago, as sea levels rose, Rottnest separated from Australia’s mainland. The island is now surrounded by shallow rocks and reefs. This is a view of Bathurst Lighthouse.
