Here is the red fungus painting finished. What do I call it? One friend suggested “Not Mush Room”. I don’t know about this….fungus


New work in progress

Posted: August 15, 2009 in art

This is the latest work in progress on the board. I saw this nestled amongst leaf litter up at Eaglereach Wilderness Retreat, and have since been told it’s a fungi. Bizarre, but a small splash of colour in an otherwise drab surrounding. The work is in pastel.Untitled

Here is another one I am working on at the moment – another landscape and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I spent a day on the local beaches taking some reference shots and decided to turn a couple of them into paintings. I still have a fair bit of work to do on the sand and trees but it’s coming together nicely.

Red Kangaroos

I’ve started a new painting of red kangaroos. I thought for something different I’d do them from the back view, so as to concentrate on the texture of their fur. I’m a little undecided about the background at this stage so I decided to block in the roos and I’ll choose my background when I’m happy with the animals.

Just finished this seascape of one of the local beaches at Mallabulla in Port Stephens.
