Our Big Tree in the Sun


Our Big Tree in the Sun
27.5 cm (w) x 37 cm (h), conté and pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.

Drawn on-site in our backyard. This drawing was done in one two-hour session, working quickly. I was mainly interested in the glow of sunlight and the accurate recording of the main colours I saw.

I am very happy with the freshness and ‘presence’ coming back from the drawing.

Winter Rain


Winter Rain
27.5 cm (w) x 37 cm (h), conté and pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.
Date produced: July 2001

Drawn on-site, looking out from my studio.

I am very pleased with the feeling of rain, overcast light, and reflection that come back from this piece.

At the time, I had one day a week in which I set aside for doing my artwork. I had been looking forward all week to getting out and continuing work on a different drawing that I had started the week before, but the weather dictated a major change in plans.

I know that in putting together some of the elements of this image, I used considerable influence from the many computer paintings I had done in the recent years before producing this pastel, especially in exaggerating the rings created by the drops of rain.
