Bus shelter - North Terrace

Illuminated bus shelters are quite a feature of Adelaide in recent years and add a welcome drop of light on a gloomy day!

A painting off a photo I took a few years ago during a downpour at Glenelg. It gives a 1950's impression, particularly as I didn't include some modern vehicles that were also in the photo.

War memorial Adelaide

This South African War Memorial is placed at the corner of North Terrace and King William Street, close to the gate of Government House. It is a fine memorial made of bronze and granite. It looks imposing at any time but particularly in the rain with Parliament House as the back-drop.

Cliff walkers

Part of a small series of studies in water colour for a much larger painting that will probably be done in acrylic because of its large size.

Beach Kats - watercolour

A water colour practice piece. Comparing acrylics and water colours, I found that the shift if colour from wet to dark is greater in water colour. Of course, water colour dries lighter and acrylic dries darker. This was mainly an exercise in figures and sails.
