Golden Dawn at Narooma Beach


We have started a trip to Tasmania, and this lovely beach was our first stop on the way.
It is in our own state of New South Wales, and deserves a longer stay!

Waiting for Rain


Our backyard dam is only half full, and we know that rain is coming next week.
It will make a difference, as we use the water for our garden. 
I painted this in the midday sun, with only a few bites from ants.. 
no sign of the death adder that crossed my path last month.  
It disappeared down towards this dam, so it's here somewhere!

This is a 'Plein Air' painting, 
acrylic on  canvas, 
18 x 14", 356 x 457mm

For Sale: $450 plus postage

Kiama in the Morning Sun



At a little cove called Easts Beach, Kiama, south of Sydney.
I was painting while perched on the rocks, but had to move back as the tide came in.
We were staying in our motorhome at a 'holiday park' nearby. (BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park)
Very quiet and peaceful in the spring.

I've been travelling


"China Town Business"
A small store in the China Town quarter in Singapore
Watercolour 


"Clock Tower by the Shops"
Rothamburg: a 'plain air' under difficult circumstances. I had left my water container behind, and had to flood one half of the palette from a water bottle. A messy sketch, but a good memory of a very cute German town.


"Red Reflections"
Bamburg was a surprise: just a modern shopping spot, I thought, until we turned a corner and discovered a medieval town built on a confluence of waterways.



"The Canal of Gold"

And wonderful Amsterdam: just a quick water tour of the canals, before we were bussed away to our ship in Utrecht. I was sad that I had no time here to catch up with Ella Arps, from The Arps Gallery. Next time!!

Selling prints...



I've finished my output for Le Tour de France this year. Some of my best efforts from previous years are on Fine Art America, and people can order any size print, and even stretched canvas. They look great when blown up! Here is a link to a recent purchase:
