Carpark full - Waymouth St

Another brushier version of my old favourite. I used a one inch brush on just about everything, including the figures and used a small brush right at the end to do little bits. It gives the work a much freer feel to it.

Beach cricket - Adelaide Oval

Anyone who knows the Adelaide oval will know how fanciful this painting is! It's just a whimsical combination of the most picturesque cricket ground in the world and beach cricket - a form of the game that is played on beaches all around Australia.

Jetty Road

Glenelg - One of the few places that is the same said backwards. It is Adelaide's seaside resort town and home to the fabled Glenelg tram. The old ones are gone now but the new yellow ones look very nice on a rainy day.

I've included a couple of progressive photos of the work in progress.

People's Choice

I've posted this painting before, but do so again because it won the People's Choice award at this year's Loreto Spring Art show as well as selling on the opening night. I regard a People's Choice award as the most satisfying of all awards.
