I am very excited about my latest painting - HMQS Gayundah - The Final Berth. It is very large - 120cm x 76cm - Oil on Canvas. My favourite for a long time. Below are photos of the construction in stages of this work.
Being a very large work, and the weather being so nice, I started painting it outside on the verandah next to my No. 1 studio (No 2 studio is my Encaustic studio). I painted the first 3 stages outside, but stage 4 and 5 (the final day) I had to bring it inside, as the weather had become a lot colder and very windy.
If you are interested in purchasing this work, or other works in this or other series, please visit my Galleries tab.
This painting will form part of my "The Last Fleet" exhibition at the Gold Coast City Gallery in February 2016, but I will probably also enter it into at least one major Art Prize exhibition in the meantime.
