*Began this with quick graphite pencil lines, did a little shading....then added some coloured pencil work, watercolour washes, and a little gouache. These are drawn from memory and imagination. I like to begin something with a rush of linework, whether I have visual information to work from or not. It’s kind of fun not knowing exactly... Continue Reading →
*A quick sketch with my black Pentel brush pen, and some colour washes using Inktense ink blocks. This is drawn in an A4 Sketch book journal, with a lovely woven eco friendly paper. After scanning it into the iPad with the Scanner Pro app, I then added little further work in Procreate. I also cleaned up... Continue Reading →

I began with some quick lines using a “Faber-Castell, Dark Sepia Pitt” artist pen, and then added watercolour. These are a few of the many landscapes I’ve attempted in recent months.

WELCOME. I draw and paint with: watercolours, gouache, ink pen, pencil…and on an iPad; working from my home-studio, in a small Australian country town. Also, I write and illustrate poems - mostly haiku. Thankful†. Hope you enjoy your visit here.

It’s wonderful to have some work on the go, and ideas percolating, awaiting a brush or pen. And so exciting when they get... Continue Reading →

I’ve also printed this picture in pigment ink, with my inkjet printer, on A3 Canson 220gsm paper. And applied some coloured pencil to it. Thoroughly enjoyed Inktober, and the opportunity to use lots of line... Continue Reading →
