Italy provides a wealth of material for the painter. From textured buildings, through landscapes to wonderful hilltop towns. A fortunate two month sojourn in this inspiring country saw these paintings come to fruition.
Paintings of Greece
I think of Greece in terms of blue and white buildings, clear, clear water and sunshine. It is hard not to be inspired to paint these scenes. I hope you enjoy them.
Paintings of France
Wonderful buildings always capture the imagination and this was certainly the case as we travelled around France. So awe inspiring.
I love the colours of the Australian landscape. The reds, ochres and browns are unbeatable. Travel the world and still you cannot see landscapes more spectacular and colourful than in our country.
Weathered timber, sandstone and corrugated iron - the basic materials of outback buildings. They have a history that needs to be captured in paint.
Australians love their beaches, the sand, sky and water - a painters delight.
Flowers and Fruit
Colour is the lifeblood of the artist and where better to find this material than amongst the flowers and fruit around us.
Rain and Water
I have always enjoyed watching the patterns the rain makes on the windows. Translating these patterns into art produces fascinating results.
The quirky nature of animals has provided me with subject matter for many paintings. They often tell a ‘story’ and have a touch of humour.
What happens inside is as important as the outside. This is a chance to paint still lifes. curtains in the breeze and the laden table.
