Mirror at 3am

This little image gallery shows the process paint sketches which led to the final piece on the gold background.

I’m not a natural planner, I struggle to sit down and do meticulous preparation for paintings, perhaps that’s a discipline I would have learned if I had academic training in art. I much prefer working with spraypaint to traditional drawing materials, I can test a concept quickly and I think this method¬† of preparing for paintings will stay with me for a long time now.

The gold piece was sold at a preview, but the sketches, and lots of other works are on show this weekend in Melbourne. Here are the details: www.facebook.com/events/806841779351835/

 

These distractions

The body of work for Distractions is coming together…letting the layers dry before the final touches.

Anyone living or visiting Melbourne should come and visit Imbibe Wine Bar on 21 February to see the work and have a few drinks.

Save the date – Distractions opening

For any Melbourne art lovers, I’m showing a selection of my paintings and drawings in February at Imbibe, a great little wine bar in Port Melbourne (at the ‘Paris end’, not the trashy fake tan end).

I’ll provide previews over the coming weeks – hope to see you there.

Heath Ledger redux

The tribute to the iconic character played by Heath Ledger was initially painted in a cartoon like style by another artist.

I was asked to make it a little bit more life-like.  The artwork, popular with many locals, disappeared from the streets of Port Melbourne for a few months after garage door broke and needed replacement.

Now it has returned, hopefully better than the earlier version, to stand as a tribute to a young talent lost too soon.
