Hey, thanks for checking out this blog.

I've moved everything over to which is my new website.

It's got several image galleries, a blog and a web shop coming soon.

More forays into the world of memory portraiture. The first and third were both from memory, the middle was from life. I was pretty amazed that the 2nd memory portrait came out so close to the one from life!

A while back I did a few cast studies and I thought I'd add them here for something to do.

The Blues- Chalk Urban Art Festival 2010

This week I am taking part in the Chalk Urban Art Festival in Parramatta. It's the second time I've taken part in the Festival and we started today.

Over 3 and a half days, 30 artists will be competing to win the title of Champion Chalk Artist. We are working on canvases of about 2m x 2.4m.

The theme is The Blues.

Working on that scale, and on the ground has plenty of challenges and already I have seen the benefit of experience showing in the first day's work, compared to last years efforts.

Here are a couple of preparatory sketches that I did in Photoshop to work out some of the details. I'll post some progress shots of the chalk piece as well.

Recent works in progress & sketches from the studio. All of these are part of my experiments in Memory Painting, where I use no reference material to paint from apart from my memory of past experiences.

The Longneck Drinker

Another new addition to the blog- an oil painting I've been working on recently from imagination.
It can probably use a little more work but its mostly there.
