Watercolour - At Rest

The Lake Illawarra series was a great delight to paint. "At Rest" is a new painting for the November exhibition. The richness of bird life at Lake Illawarra was really unexpected but has proven to be a great delight as we review the photos and memories of a wonderful couple of days.

Watercolour - The Sentinel

On a calm evening the sky does some amazing things. We came across this guy as he was retsing and enjoying the sunset just as we were. I can imagine that if he was on the lookout as he prepared for an evening of rest.
This is another painting for the exhibition at Pt Lonsdale in November.

Watercolour - The Board Rider 1

I'm preparing a series of new paintings for a shared exhibition to be held in Pt Lonsdale in November. As space is limited, these are smaller paintings.  At the moment most of the finished paintings are figurative. I'm enjoying painting people and of course, at the beach, there has to be children totally engaged in their activities.
The first in this set of three is an adventurous board rider ready to face the waves [not that there were many and certainly not of any size]. Still, imagination is a wonderful thing - to be cherished and not lost with age.

A Walk in the Fog Watercolour

This is the second of six paintings for the people series. 'A Walk in the Fog' on St Kilda pier one early morning  in July. It was cold and damp but a surprising number of people up and about, walking, fishing, taking photos .....

Back to Watercolour Painting

After a period of no painting it's time to get back to it. The new workspace [aka studio] is up and running and works quite well.
I have begun a series of paintings featuring people - hopefully each painting will tell a story without words.

 Curiosity is the first of a series of six I'm hoping to have ready for an exhibition at Tussoks Upstairs Art Gallery, Pt Lonsdale in November. Watch for more details soon.
