Young African Elephant
Many people like their wildlife realistic.
other art-minded people like the impressionist style. It's a matter of good taste.
Contact me for this one, It should be appreciated by wildlife collectors.

I painted these sausages with a single battered brush.
Oil on reclaimed hardboard, coated with gesso.
"Sossies" (with a pork chop)
(South African slang for sausages)
I have always wanted to paint like this. But afraid 'cos I know many won't like the style. Loose.
Still, as the song says, I gotta be me...this is tonight's braai (barbecue).

Oil sketch above, actual photo below.
This scene is most visited by local Victorians in BC. A lot of dog owners let their pets run hassle-free, and artists love it for the many scenes to paint in the area.
My family says my painting isn't finished but I know it is because when artists have realized their intentions - it's DONE!

"Rocks & bush, Cattle Point"
My current fav place to paint. I'm borrowing styles from Carol Marine and the redoubtable ken Faulks
while trying to sustain my own way of working. (Better artists always help me by just being there...)

"Ball Kid, Madrid 2017"
TV gives one endless subjects for sketching - instead of Federer
or other greats I chose this this ball kid.
"Dafs and Red flower"
Coll picked some home grown daffodils and added a red flower
from a bouquet given to her by Tim and Karla.

"House in the Fraser Valley"
Gouache is like watercolour but has more body, giving a nice flat opaque appearance. I am doing well with it now after a few first tentative attempts.
And this image comes from my own visit to this exciting part of British Columbia. I hope you enjoy the vision before you.
