Belle - the last of the naturalists - let's hope not!

At the end of January 2015 Sawtell Art Group held a series of art workshops. My painting was undertaken in Ros Robertson’s contemporary acrylics class. Everyone thought I was painting a pear! So another one for my Pirelli Calendar. Only 10 to go.

Also with the Sawtell Art Group, this artwork involves painting and collage.. This  was undertaken in Lujcia Ray’s Mixed Media workshop and uses a black gesso canvas that incorporates hand made paper, acrylics, collage and pastels.

White Belly, a Sioux Indian Painting

In keeping with our USA trip and visit to the National Association of Interpretation conference in Denver this commission was for a friend with American Indian heritage. This painting is of White Belly, a Sioux Indian. I was originally asked for a painting of a man and woman but in typical artist style I did this painting of White Belly and also offered up to previous pencil drawings which fulfilled the design brief.

I think this one was from a birthday card , but it could easily be a Robert Maplethorpe photograph too.

Painting for my niece’s 21st birthday. I found a photo in a magazine. It was tiny, about 3 cm square so it left a lot of room for imagination.

And the real thing … I’m sure Panda qualifies as a figure painting!

This is Katrina – my gorgeous girlfriend. We’re on holiday in Bali here (2010).

Robert Maplethorpe’s photography has provided inspiration along the way.
