On a Ledge. (sold )

I did this painting over a year ago, it was purchased by the owners of 'The Dudley' boutique small hotel in Hepburn, Cate the owner, has hung the painting in one of the reception rooms near the entrance and I was thrilled to see it, in a beautiful position on an almost black gloss wall, Knock out! I had forgotten how good it was,!!  maybe one of my best paintings. anyone wanting to stay in a great little hotel and see the sights in this part of Australia, you wouldn't do any better than the Dudley.

cabbage and plums.

A similar painting to the one below, it is oil on canvas, and over a meter in width, I like the idea of the cabbage being a back drop to the plums that are lurking in the shadows ! I may follow this theme for a while.

Beth turning.

A quick drawing done in Adelaide earlier this year, in Harry's famous life drawing group. !

Going Up.

This painting was done about 3 months ago here in Daylesford, it is a 100cm x wide by 80 cm,
oil on canvas, it took ages to complete! click on it to see a larger view,  I will try to get myself on track in the new year with a better work ethic,!  and also engage a new gallery
in Melbourne, I have been side tracked with house renovations almost all of this year, so lets hope I can get motivated and enjoy my art in 2016.


A drawing completed recently at life drawing in Ballarat, pastel and background paint, large format.

Cabbage and Peaches.

this painting was done for the Daylesford Art Show a few weeks ago, it's oil on canvas and it is about
120 cm x 75. I will be adding more stuff over the next few days, before we go to Adelaide to
see the the family for a pre Christmas get together.

Life drawing .

This is a 20 minute sketch done in Ballarat a couple of weeks ago at our drawing group,
I prepare the paper 1st,  with some bold colours  in acrylic then draw over the top with pastels.

Emerging 2.

I have tried to follow the style of the previous image ( further down the page.) with
this mixed media piece acrylic and oil, also some collage, it is about a meter square, with so
many interesting areas to catch the eye, hope you like it.

Three in a row.

My favorite fruit, !! again a smaller picture, with a pale grey background the colours
stand out  like little jewels, hope you like it,

Mandarins (sold )

nice little painting, about 410 X 310 oil on canvas, my photo doesn't do it justice. !

'Emerging' ( sold )

This is my 1st update for about 12 months since moving to Daylesford, we have been renovating
the house and building a studio converted from an old single car garage, it isn't as big as the one in Adelaide but will suffice.
anyway all this work hasn't given me much time to paint, but things are beginning to settle down now a
so I will pop things up occasionally.
the painting above was sold at the recent Daylesford art show.
it is a little different for me, let me know what you think, my email is rogerrobertsart@gmail.com
