Sunrise painting today. WIP.

Scene in the district of Wilaura

I started to paint from a lovely photo that a man named Colin in Wallaura took, he kindly let me use it. Hopefully finish it tomorrow, it has sheep in the foreground.

Sunset in Avoca

I also got a commission to paint this scene this morning. Hopefully can get that beautiful glow in the clouds with the right colour Waiting for a larger canvas now that I ordered today.

2nd family, 5 portraits

I was asked to draw the Partners children as well, was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t think I could when I saw the photographs. But they’re happy with results,

Older sister who was sitting on a motorbike at night, I was lucky to see her well enough when I cropped to her face for a better view
This was a blurred and awkward pose, he was waving but I thought to leave his hand out, now I wish I’d put it in,
I didn’t think this was a suitable pose at all, but it turned out ok
4 th child,

I drew them on Monday, when it was too cold to be in my shed come studio. Was a marathon attempt,

Family portrait

Did a marathon today, most ever portraits in one day. A friend commissioned me for her mother’s birthday. Was very enjoyable too.

Sorry about the light. The papers white I should take another photo in daylight.

Womans fictitional portrait

I wanted to draw a pretty woman today. I’ve come to the conclusion that they are pretty boring to draw, and hard too because there’s not much to latch onto in the way of shadows wrinkles or muscle differences. Anyway I like what I came to draw in the end and I’ve tried its luck by putting it up for sale, perhaps someone will like her.

Reptilian beings?

We watch all kinds of world news , especially since covid we have been following certain threads about politics and the new world order. It led to a really peculiar report last night about aliens and reptilians, which spooked me a bit till this morning because I happened to paint something which preempted last nights report yesterday. I’ll show it to you. I got over it with our Sunday activities but sometimes I seem to be a bit prophetic with my work as an outsider artist, I don’t know which is spookier, me painting it or worse the idea that they exist. I already put it up for sale on Bluethumb yesterday.

Sunday arvo charcoal drawing

I have been charcoal drawing Sunday Afternoons for a while now. Its great to keep my drawing up and to be able to spend time with my family rather than painting in the studio, and to keep my mind off world affairs. I think we’re in serious trouble. But that is another story. Here’s the charcoal drawing .

Iso Activities

Finished an oil painting today, the view from my front yard.

Oil painting on canvas 100 x 33 cm

And a friends baby picture. Thought he looked very cute.

All my time in Isolation is spent productively. But I am wondering where its all leading too.

Advance Australia Fair

Advance Australia Fair. Acrylic on university Cartridge paper. 60 x 85 cm

Thought I’d put an Australian Flag on this painting when I painted it a week or so ago. So here it is . Think it is working with her sitting there so sleepy in lockdown, bored out of her mind like the rest of us. With mental illness abounding and all that goes with it, She’s taking it sitting down.

Playing with paint

Had a lovely play today. Feels so liberating. My live Facebook was just about ok, but I wasn’t happy, I forgot a few things and my camera stand was difficult to manover, and I overdid a drawing, a sure sign my mind went out of gear, ha ha anyway back to today’s painting it will be on Bluethumb soon for sale.
