'What bird is that.?'

This painting was done the other week, it's oil on canvas, and is 51 cm x 41 cm, I am trying to be a little less fussy with my brush strokes and give it a sense of spontaneity, hope you like it, please leave any comments, it's 44 degrees Celsius here in South Australia at the moment, a result no doubt of global warming, we seem to be breaking records for heat, each successive year, keep cool!!

Across the Universe

I took this photo with my new camera.  I'm finding it difficult to get rid of the flare that happens on the black surface - I didn't use the flash on this.  I'm hoping I can come to grips with the technicalities of this new camera.  Any tips?

Across the Universe (sold)

The painting shown above with the black background was a commissioned artwork. It's 120cm x 120cm and is due for delivery to the collector after my holiday in NSW this week.

While on holiday in Sydney, I visited an old friend who had purchased the painting above. It was nicely displayed which was great to see.

SOLD - Nature's Table

This small painting was completed for a client in Sydney. I'm enjoying depicting fallen leaves and found objects that make it to my studio from the abundant vegetation surrounding the studio.

My Studio

And here are some further images of the studio and garden. My son, James who works in Sydney making corporate videos and TV commercials took them. He certainly has a good eye when it comes to photography.

My Studio

I thought it would be a good idea to post up some photos of my studio and surroundings. I've had a number of enquiries regarding methods of working, materials etc. So by posting up these images it may give an insight into the size of my paintings and the way I set up my still life.
