big brush "Northwest" 24x30 oil


"Northwest" 
Loosey goosey - wave that brush around, let go of my restrictions and let rip. There's a lot going on in the inner mind and we painters deserve to let the brush flow now and then.

isolation painting "Woodshed by the Stream" oil on hardboard 9" x 12"


Social distancing means I do not paint en plein air with the Alfrescoes. So here's the oil I did today based on one of my photographs. It's not on canvas but it's painted over an old work that has since dried. The choppy brushwork gives the impression that the support (ground) is textured but it's not.

Fun project for a bored artist: Egg carton pastel art 8x10


Soak your used egg carton in a bucket of water for a while,
 beat up the mixture, pour the mulch on a tray and let it dry.


I used pastel to draw the lion on the new egg mulch!

Click to enlarge.

A little way out of the city centre, lots happen at this vintage corner, haircuts, a well-established dry cleaner and dentists. Oh and hifi experts too. It is the transition between Pandora and the famous Oak Bay avenue - we live on the edge of greatness!

"Beach Tenders in primaries" 6x6 oil


Row boats (tenders) are used by sailors to get themselves ashore once they are anchored out in the bay. The boats have these primary colours which make them a treat to paint in thick juicy brush strokes.
