New pastel drawing

I did this drawing last week at the art school,I attempt to get a really gutsy strong line, with some subtle areas to tempt the eye, all the smudges and searching lines are an added bonus! hope you like it, click on the image for a larger view, or click comments to give me your feedback.

Oil Sketch

This little oil sketch was made at last weeks life drawing session. It's painted on to oil sketch paper which I had prepared with a neutral colour background. It took about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Postage Stamp

I designed a Christmas stamp for Australia Post a long time ago and this year they have chosen five classic Australian Christmas stamps to reissue. I'm happy to say that my Santa on a surfboard was chosen along with the others. Australia was the first country in the world to do a special Christmas stamp issue and my design was the first cartoon to appear on an Australian stamp.


Here is a recent oil on canvas that I painted for my exhibition in Sydney. I have a winery interested in acquiring it for their cellar door. I should know in the next week or two, meanwhile if you know of anyone in the wine industry get in touch with me through my email.
