This painting was also done from a balcony of Phi Phi the Beach Resort on Phi Phi Island. As you can see the views are incredible! This island is called Phi Phi Ley and it is where The Beach was filmed. It was a hot and cloudy day with thunderstorms on and off, this picture was done as the tide was going out and the coral rocks were being revealed by the receding water. The darker areas of the island are the entrances to into the secluded bays where The Beach was filmed.
