“Painting is concerned with all the 10 attributes of sight; which are Darkness,Light, solidity and colour,form and position, distance and propinquity,motion and rest. Leonardo Da Vinci”
As explained above is for me my constant joy and constant challenge. Some days I feel sluggish, disinclined to go to the studio,
then I will see a reflected light on a flower or the colour of a birds wing and I have renewed hope to translate that moment into my painting.
Employed as a graphic artist in Melbourne, I specialised in work to be printed on linen, confined to using only 8 colours. Today the multitude of pastel hues still delights me.
