Some landscapes

Recollections of Tooms Lake

Hi everyone. I've just returned from a lengthy summer vacation during which time i didn't paint a scrap and neither did i, regrettably, do any blogging. So all your lovely comments have had to wait until now before i could respond. Hope you understand.

But i thought i had best post something to show that i'm still alive, despite not having any new work, and so i thought i'd trot out some watercolor landscapes from six or seven years ago. They are mostly of Tasmania, within half an hours drive of where i live. The style belongs to the Claude picturesque, though i hope to move away from this in the coming year as i make my return to landscape painting.

Cressy, looking to Arthur's Lake

Beyond Evandale, 2007

Gum trees

Noosa, 2004

And these a little minatures, 16x12 cm, were painted with the one brush in 5 mins as a discipline.
