Santa comes to Melbourne! by Roz McQuillan

Saw this as I was driving through East Melbourne and screeched to a stop to capture him in action, climbing this wonderful piece of Melbourne architecture!
This photograph was featured in the Red Bubble groups ‘Full Frontal Facades’, ’ Australian Capital Cities’, and ‘Inner-city Suburbs’, and has currently (16/11/10 ) been viewed 418 times.

My style is contemporary whilst firmly rooted in realism. I work in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, and mixed media, and am currently painting in oils. I find that changing and experimenting with mediums keeps me fresh and open to learning. I especially love capturing the human face and figure in oils, and photographing the urban landscape, including the amazing graffiti to be found in Melbourne.
