Cape Arid National Park is a fascinating and remote area on the far south-eastern coast of Western Australia. Husband-and-wife team Philippa and Alex Nikulinsky travel into isolated outback regions, often staying for months at a time, to paint the Australian bush. Braving howling winds, grit, sleet, 43-degree heat and thousands of flies, the Nikulinskys travel rough sandy tracks to be rewarded by shimmering seas, islands and unique flora and fauna. In this book, they share the privilege of their experiences through finely detailed botanical watercolours, sweeping black-and-white landscapes and an intimate written record of their journeys.
