Pastel on Canson Mi Teintes paper (brown) – 70cm x 50cm
(565 views 20/12/09)

I spent a most enjoyable afternoon in a local shed sitting on a wool bale scribbling onto a sketch pad and taking some reference photos and this was what I came up with. The Men at Work are Pete and Garry. Pete (the fella with the broom) is my husband. It was quite a few years ago, (in the days when they both still had quite a bit of hair on their heads)!!!!!

Featured in ‘Australia! You’re Standing in It’ group – July 2009

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    I would assume that the original pastel had more detail in the flesh of the shearer, and the wool of the sheep. You have got the action I watched as a kid, but never experienced.

  • Thanks FM. From my ‘failing memory’ I’m sure there was more detail in the wool which contrasted with the shearer’s elbow. When you look at this they all ‘blend’ together.
