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.

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.

The tawnys are really starting to take shape now, I still have a fair bit of work to do on the birds, but I wanted to make a start on the background. The first layer of leaves is down, with only a few more to add to the far background. The bird on the left is still relatively untouched, so I will focus more on that this week.

Had a bit of a play around in the studio this morning experimenting with a few different pastels. These are the results!
