In Sleepy Bay was included in an exhibition of 55 works by Outhwaite at Preece’s Gallery, King William Street in Adelaide in November 1922. A reviewer of the exhibition described this drawing as a “dainty fantasy in which a dreamy child sleeps in a cradle made of the crescent moon which swings on the Milky Way. A tree blossoming with stars stands close by. The artist has achieved a beautiful effect of diffused light in this composition.” Ref: The Advertiser, 21.11.1922.

This image is an excellent example of Outhwaite’s skill in drawing.
