A morning at the beach

Hi there, I went to my local beach last week and had a go at getting better with my photography… so here’s some of the result.. I hope you like them… I enjoyed using Lightroom to make some insipid mid morning shots look quite moody! I was also pleased with the relatively sharp focus I was able to achieve… I’m also open to critique and comments..

Artwork for Mother’s Day

Hi there, I thought I’d share this piece I created for my mother for Mother’s Day. I couldn’t think what to buy her, so I created this based on a photo (you might have seen) 🙂 of the little native fantail that visits my Dad in his garage/workshop on an almost daily basis!

8 x 11″ Bockingford 300gsm/140lb watercolor paper
Faber Castell Durer watercolor pencils

My first showing in a truly public space!

Firstly I want to very much thank Steve Cousins of Hagley Park Art Gallery (and Cafe) for giving me the opportunity to get my work on a wall in the gallery and getting my work in front of a wider group of people… it gives me more confidence in knowing that I am on the right path and moving forward in the right direction. There’s also going to be a “meet the artist” evening in late June this year!! I’ll let you all know when it will be on! 🙂
