I went to the pastel society exhibition last week and was impressed with the variety and standard of the paintings. There were a lot of very loose paintings which inspired me to paint this piece. It is on a large colorfix paper, 100cm x 70cm. Lots of fun to paint!

Sea side Adventures

This picture was done for charity event for November. The photo reference was from Prue Metzke. I enjoyed completing this painting, it all happened easily. Lately I am having trouble completing works for various reasons. I think I have too many things that I want to paint, so I keep starting a new one before the last one is finished. Does anyone else have that problem?

Mornington Beach finished

Finished this piece today. I have really enjoyed working on this. I had been contemplating painting this for a while. We went down to Mornington on a really hot day in Summer. I took a photo of my daughter strolling a head of me. There she is in the white dress. The lovely thing about the photo were the wonderful reflections in the water.

The Windy Path

The Windy Path is a charcoal on water color paper. I loved the feel of the tree and the way the limbs twisted and turned through the mist.
