A portrait of a ‘true blue’ Aussie! (He also happens to be my husband, Peter)! I particularly enjoyed the colours in the ‘Drizabone’ coat, and the light and shade on the face.

    Yes – very exciting!!! Thanks for your comment Barb. I think I may have overdone it. I think I have put too many paintings on too quickly, so I have been taking some off!

    I take it that he is your partner? Actually, I’ve been thinking along the same lines with my husband, an ex cowboy, and man of the land. Ready made subjects to pose for rural paintings.

  • Yes, it is my husband. He doesn’t usually look as solemn!!!!
