From 1913 Beatrice Darbyshire studied etching in Perth with Henri van Raalte, producing her first drypoint in 1919 and from 1924–27 in London at the Royal College of Art. Beatrice Darbyshire was interested in the landscape around the Balingup – Nannup Road, in the South West. This road led to ‘Dudinalup’, the home of a family friend.
