Title: Remnant
Genre: Landscape
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 58 cm X W 42 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0169-01
Price: $475

Artist Notes

This once proud tree is a remnant of the once verdant forests that surrounded it. Its present surroundings are modern and contemporary - so different from what it was when it began life some two hundred years ago. I have used graphite as this best expresses the emotion of the subject. It is drawn on quality paper.

NRN#: 000-2063-0168-01

The colours in the drawing almost, but can never match, the brilliant glowing original. Imagine it hanging in full sunshine. Very beautiful!!! I hope I have done it justice.

Title: Pittosporum Leaf - Spring Colours
Genre: Still Life
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 17 cm X W 41 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0167-01
Price: $275

Artist Notes

I have tried to capture the spring hues of this beautiful variety of Pittosporum. By summer the light green and grey shading has all turned into the predominant dark green.
(The yellowish shade in the photo is actually a light, almost grass green in the actual drawing)

Title: Mountain Ash - Cockatoo
Genre: Contemporary
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 57 cm X W 40 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0166-01
Price: $555

Artist Notes

I was struck the virtually unblemished beauty of the trunks of these magnificent eucalypts and the way they contrasted with colour and texture of their surroundings - both natural and manmade. The drawing is entirely in coloured pencil on good quality paper.

Title: Mordialloc Creek
Genre: Contemporary
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 20 cm X W 26 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0164-01
Price: $160

Artist Notes

I have tried to move away from the more usual interpretations of this rich source of inspiration. Here you see a view of the Creek that may be commonly passed over, but nonetheless has its own beauty and character. It is drawn on very good paper, entirely in graphite.

Title: Birch
Genre: Contemporary
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 24 cm X W 31 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0163-01
Price: $525

Artist Notes

In this piece I have tried to highlight the beautiful and subtle tonings of the bark and contrast this with the stronger, more assertive knothole.

Title: Beaconsfield Barn
Genre: Contemporary
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 73 cm X W 32 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0162-01
Price: $525

Artist Notes

This is a portion of a century (at least) old barn. It is reaching the end of its days yet remains a testament to its past. I\'ve tried to capture this dignity rather than the dilapidation. It is drawn in coloured pencil on good quality paper

Title: Murrindindi
Genre: Landscape
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 19 cm X W 55 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0161-01
Price: $475

Artist Notes

This is based on an old farmhouse at Murrundindi. Its replacement stands nearby. That this house still stands, still exudes character and warmth after being abandoned touched me and I was motivated to try and capture at least some of that - not just the inexorable impact of the years. It has been drawn entirely in coloured pencil on very good paper.

Title: Pear Leaf
Genre: None Entered
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 17 cm X W 35 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0160-01
Price: $275

Artist Notes

I was fascinated by the amazing contrast between the summer and autumn colours on this beautiful leaf. It is about four times actual size. It is on a matt grey paper (which the photo doesn't adequately capture).

Genre: Landscape
Medium: Pencil on Paper
Size ( H 23 cm X W 70 cm)
NRN#: 000-2063-0159-01
Price: $475

Artist Notes

This is the weathered buttress of an immense Cyprus pine, full of convoluted nooks and crannies and weathering and aging, all wrapped in a patina of green lichen.
