Helloo, there, thought I would share some recent pieces with you...c & c welcome however the first one has been sold so I can't do much about that :lol: The first piece was painted from a ref photo taken by my brother on a trip to Tasmania, the second piece was a commission and quite a head scratcher of a ref photo (so complicated) and the third is a portrait of my house that I have been wanting to try for quite a while...I made a youtube video of the house picture to demo painting a tree so if you want to take a look here's the link http://youtu.be/gQgmg64foOs (sorry my voice is so annoying, I tried to drown it out with piano music :lol:)

Your paintings are beautiful. The waterfall with rocks is peaceful and calming.

G'day Leesa,
I like all three of these, but must say your rocky waterfall has beautiful detailing and is my favourite. Great to see another UTube clip of you working too.
Oh! Your blog reads well, am glad you got it up.

Very beautiful work! Pastel latter is very bright and it looks like the works of Monet. You make the contrasts with the colors: There are not very dark but your contrats are beautiful and strongs.
