Still Life with Oranges artwork

Still Life with Oranges

Recent Work of Art - Still Life with Oranges

Pastel artwork on Canson pastel paper of a bowl of fruit on a kitchen table. This composition is based on the fruit bowl sitting on my kitchen table with the light streaming in the window and reflecting from the soft lights under the kitchen bench. I was having a break and enjoying a cup of tea when I looked across the room to see what looked like a fantastic painting in the making. I had no idea I could arrange fruit so well!

The artwork has gathered the following awards, to date:

  • 1st place - Still Life or Floral Division, 2011 Spring Exhibition of the Pastel Society of Victoria, held at the Victorian Art Society Gallery in East Melbourne
  • 2nd place - Professional Division, Victorian Pastel Society monthly meeting (August 2011)

Recent Work of Art - Mornington Sunset

Pastel on blue pastel paper derived from a photograph of the shoreline near Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. A lot of little details have been deleted and the colours have been modified to suite the mood. Originally intended as a practice piece in the studio, the final work has come out to a standard that I am very happy with and proud to show.

The artwork now is gathering many awards, to date:

  • Best in Nautical - Western Port Festival Art Show 2011 (February, 2011)
  • Peoples Choice - Western Port Festival Art Show 2011 (February, 2011)
  • 2nd place - Member's Monthly Encouragement Award - Pastel Society of Victoria (March, 2011)
