Patio and Garden

This is a drawing I completed today. It is a pen and ink drawing on Stonehenge paper. The image size is 15cms high x 13cms wide.


The image is the view of my garden seen from our verandah/patio. My wife and I regularly sit here in the late afternoon drinking coffee (or something harder) relaxing after a busy day.

The frame is for online presentation only.

The drawing is available for sale at an affordable price from my online gallery.

I got blisters on my fingers!

Well, I exaggerate a bit but I have been doing a lot of sketching and drawing lately enjoying the freedom to try different things without any preconcieved outcome in mind.

This is one example of those efforts.


A felt pen drawing 8cms x 13cms in size. The landscape is a vineyard near Clarendon, a small town South of Adelaide, South Australia. The area around is somewhat diversified in its agriculture but it is near the wine area of McLaren Vale so vineyards are found here as well.

More of my recent drawings as well as older examples can be seen in my online gallery.

Hope you can visit.

After ‘Chaos’ Etching

Have  had a rather hectic two weeks so I was glad to be back in the studio today printing an etching that has patiently been waiting for me to get around to it. Tried to get a Chinese painting feel to the image and am pleased with the result. The image is 15.5cms wide x 6cms high. It is printed using a cardboard plate onto which were applied areas of fairly liquid colour and a copper plate for the black linework. The landscape is based on Marks Point an area of the Coroong, south of Adelaide.
