Alphington Open Studios this weekend
I would like you to know that the Alphington Open Studio weekend will be on this weekend Saturday 26th – Sunday 27th November 11am – 6pm.
Still life abstracted painting.
These are two small acrylic paintings on board. I am trying a couple of different techniques. Some abstract and some real.
Still life painting with boronia flowers and apples.
I think almost finished. Sorry not such a great quality photo and it is clipped a bit.
This is a photo of one of the set ups that I rejected.
This one has the apples still looking like tomatos.
For my still-life work I underpaint, I use a limited palette of colours and my materials are oil pencil (sparing) and acrylic paint.
New still life paintings from my sick bed.
I managed to get through winter without a cold but first week of spring and I am sick. Oh well could be worse. I am really happy as I have produced three still life paintings that I am very happy with during this period.
Oscar my cat wouldn’t move away from tv screen, I have lost my voice so couldn’t yell at him so we managed just like this.
Exhibition ‘Seven’ is on now and guess what, I sold SEVEN.
I struggled with the title as I have said in the past. I kept it very simple, seven small to medium sized works and seven mini responses to the larger works. Guess how many sold – yep, SEVEN.
Works on Paper exhibition entry open soon and here is a detail from my entry.
Here is a detail from one of three pieces I will be entering into a works on paper exhibition. I am using acrylic paint for backgrounds and several collage cutouts. The man is hand drawn and painted with inspiration from Bruegel the Elder. All three pieces are quite small and all are hybrid characters.
My exhibition has started but the opening is on Saturday at 2.00pm. If in Melbourne please come by.
My still-life paintings are being exhibited very soon.
Finally it’s here, the Out of the box group of artists that I have exhibited with for over 13 years are having their 2015 exhibition titled SEVEN.
I have posted a few pictures over the past few months plus another one here today. If you wish to discuss you can contact me or the gallery for further information or other images.
I have seven acrylic paintings/oil pencil works on board plus seven tiny 12.5 x 12.5cm works that are details or responses to the larger works. All the work is still-life layered acrylic paintings using a limited palette. The works have been scratched, sprayed, sanded to reveal underpainted colours. I have had Morandi on my mind in the making of this body of work.
Final preparations for gallery exhibition in Collingwood.
Our exhibition is called ‘SEVEN’.
I researched lots of different ideas and came up with not very much at all to inspire me with the title.
I decided to turn my attention to still life work which has been very rewarding for me. I hope you like the pic I am posting. I have made seven still-life works and seven small responses/details that will hang separately. If you are looking for a long articulate explanation, again, I have nothing.
I can tell you that I have used a limited colour palette of ultramarine blue, cadmium red, cadmium yellow and titanium white acrylic paint as well as an oil pencil. There is the tiniest amount of venetion red and alizarin crimson used as well. If you are looking – no not seven colours.
