This exhibition is based on painting atmosphere, atmospheric landscapes. Painting plein air at any time and in various weather conditions opens up a whole new way of viewing the landscape or better still my way of interpreting the landscape. The larger ones were scaled up in the studio from smaller originals.
Born 1947, living in Newport where I grew up, attended the Williamstown Technical School where I stayed after school one night a week to attend the extra art class that was available. Currently a member of the Hobsons Bay Art Society, Victorian Artists Society and the Twenty Melbourne Painters. Have won many awards over the years which include Artist of the year 3 times, and the cash award in the Alice Bale. After teaching art and painting for around 25 years I have finally stopped teaching. I am now painting a lot more plein air which I really enjoy.
