Birds and a landscape

I love it when we stay in one place for a few days because I can get some serious painting done! I seem to be stuck on birds at the moment but there's a landscape in there as well... a place that we camped for a couple of days called Mikkira Station. This open paddock is surrounded by a forest of Manna Gums which are the type of eucalypt that koalas love best... hence they are full of koalas! I loved the play of light captured in this moment...

Happy Christmas!!
This is Vicki's dog Monty which I painted for her for Christmas. It's the first of my 6x6's that I'm actually happy with...!

More quick paintings

Here are some more quick paintings. A White-necked Heron on a log; a mother walking along the foreshore of Coffin Bay with her daughter at sunset; a sheep in Dunked - south of the Grampians...

Quick paintings

A few more 6x6's. I thought I could do a better job with the colours of the pelican, so I tried it again... it turned out very similar though! The next painting is a small church we went to in Huskisson and lastly an emu crossing the road in the Flinders Ranges.

After looking at some of the 6x6 daily paintings online, I've been reinspired to do some more myself. Here are 2 I did today...

This is Bonnie, at least it's an interpretation of Bonnie. Portraits aren't like doing trees. There's a lot of liberty in painting a tree... who's going to know if it's like a particular tree? Not so with a particular face... must keep practicing!
