Paratutu - painted with left over paint but it came out reasonable. I am being challenged working with oils and using colour, The way to get better is to keep going! A bit of an Hockney influence with the road colours
I have really struggled with this painting. I feel it is too green but slowly it came right - I think!
The painting of the changing landscape of Waverley Caves Beach over 6 decades seemed like a simple idea but it also has been a challenge but I am reasonably pleased with the finished painting. Starting to get the hang of oil paint.
I have enjoyed drawing a seated image - this from TV

This week a new book I had ordered arrived based on Richard Diebenkorn's sketch books. I have long admired Diebenkorn's semi -abstract and abstract large landscapes and figure drawings. The sketchbooks are mainly figure drawings. Diebenkorn work has recently been shown in an exhibition along with Matisse who he admired greatly. Diebenkorn was a well known American artist painting in post war USA based in the San Francisco area
The following sketches are based on some of the drawings in the book.
