Newcastle harbour (NSW) oil on board
This is an oil on board completed in 2015. I admit I enjoy oils as much as soft pastels and this subject is full of energy. The beach is next to the entrance to Newcastle harbour (in NSW) and the busy ship traffic creates a perfect backdrop for the throng of people and their pets, almost like pressed flowers in a book. The painting is 40cmx43cm.
A favourite haunt right in the city of Newcastle NSW. Oil on board 40cm x 43cm. In my top 3 paintings for 2015. I love the extra richness of oils though I do get a kick out of the speed of soft pastels where I have a good following. I've lived in Newcastle for the past 40 years and had steady sales of my work for 25 of those.
Capturing a moment in time, beautiful.
