It’s been a long time since I posted on this blog, a lot has happened over the last couple of years. Here is my latest – Wolves – pastel.


New work in progress

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

Works in progress

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.

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

Here are the lillies finished. I didn’t overdo the lillies in the forground because I wanted to keep the main focus of the drawing as the reflection. Hope you like it.

Just a quick update photo – the painting is coming along well, I have put in the reflection of the jetty and the clouds. I have started to put in the lillies randomly. Still a few more adjustments to make before it is finished.

After a recent stay at Eaglereach Wilnerness retreat, I have a mountain of location shots that I have been eager to turn into paintings. As a break from the tawnys, I started on this painting. The reflections in the water on this still morning were amazing. I have started putting in the main body of water and have put the base in for the boards on the jetty. The lillies, will go in as the last step once I have all the reflections in place.
