Adelaide Cup & 3colour exercise

Adelaide Cup - oil on canvas - 40cm x 50cm

This little still life is a departure from my comfort zone and was done to be used on the invitation
to the official opening of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts Spring Member's Exhibition entitled "Up and running". The exhibition will be opening at 2pm on Sunday 6 March and will also include my monochrome study of a thouroughbred (see below). Venue : RSASA Gallery, Institute Building, Cnr Kintore Ave and North Tce, Adelaide.

Woman in a dark shawl - oil on canvas - 30cm x 40cm

This 3 colour exercise is the first painting in the current portrait course I'm conducting at
Port Adelaide. The aim was to introduce students to the potential inherent in a limited palette and to ease everyone into the systematic approach I suggest they adopt to bring about predictable/repeatable results in their paintings. (More about the classes next time)
