Bold colours and gestrual brush strokes.



I started #3 in my Bayside series this week. Above are a few photos of where I got up to, it's far from finished, I've only just started to add the bold observed colours and be a little freer in my mark making. The first sketch out was a disaster and had to be wiped back and painted a second time, so I was off to a very slow start. I had hoped this one would be finished today in time to show my friends at Paint Party Friday, let's hope it's done for you all next week. Happy Weekend!

    1. Oh, thanks Natasha! There is so much more detail that I want to get in, so it means heaps you think it looks like a photo from a far. I'm going for painterly realism with this one.

  19. I love your brush strokes and how textural they are. Beautiful colours and the seashore looks amazing aswell.
    I am a twelve year old girl who really likes art aswell, and because i am so young and have a quite straightforward and juivinille mind, would you mind if i ask you the following questions;

    Do you happen to have any relation to "HARRY POTTER" the J.K Rowling novel?

    :)
    Been obssessed with it lately so could not resist not asking you this question.

    Hope you don't mind, after all , twelve year olds have quite an imaginations.

    Wonderful painting, hope to see the finished piece soon.


    Have a great weekend

    1. Ha, Ha :) You'd be surprised how often I get asked that question, especially since the movies came out. I'm not related to Harry, nor to Beatrice Potter,not that I know of :) Funny though my dad's name is Barry, so it's one letter away from 'Harry'. Thanks for you lovely and inquisitive comment.

  20. Wonderful colors and organic natural forms. Reminds me of a painting like Rainy landscape, by Russian painter
    Kandinsky, http://EN.WahooArt.com/
    A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWL66
    , that I saw at wahooart.com, from where one can order a canvas print of it.
    Really good place to browse the painter’s work and other work similar to your style of painting.
