Middle of winter and very cold in Tasmania but surprisingly settled weather. Beautiful scenes, reflections on still water. Drove up the East Coast to Swansea on Monday. Lots of material for some future paintings in my sketchbook.

The two below have been influenced by the online course I have been doing. Just a few small highlights are needed on these next two. Needing to buy a particular colour crayon for that. They measure 60 x 30 cm.

I also revisited a pair that had been ‘stuck’ and am pleased with where they are going now. I was inspired by some particular ‘winter’ colours in a Dulux advertisement. Measure 50 x 60 cm.

I am 1.5 weeks into the Find Your Joy 20209 course and do lots of ‘freeing up’ exercises. Throwing paint around and making as many interesting marks as possible. Great fun! Here’s a few

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
