Twillight Graze
Another one from the exhibition, the photo of this one is a bit darker than the actual painting. This piece is about 1m square. For the show I tried to have some paintings that related in some way to the sculptures. Also I love painting kangaroos :) Cheers!

Big Red
This one was so much fun to paint, I went away from the bright background of the last kangaroo piece and really enjoyed using earthier tones for this one. These new boards that I'm using now give a really substantial surface that can take all the scraping b...
