Copper pots - a still life

In this drawing I used a mixture of ink, shellac, charcoal and chalk as an experiment.  Shellac tends to resist ink resulting in interesting effects.  It was a mild resist in this case and I then added the charcoal and white chalk.

Paintings from before...



I thought that since I am currently visiting Bendigo in Vic that I would post some paintings that I painted while I lived here - if that makes any sense at all and even if it doesn't I am putting them into the blog.  I let my old website expire and with it have lost some of my old work but retrieved these ones.... They are from top, Rosella, Kamarooka Mallee and Train carriage at Muskerry.

Sketch of Kay

A portrait drawing of my daughter Kay.  I think I've captured that mischievous grin!
