Ready to Hang
Slowly the day quietly ends and without fanfare the sky gently shifts a little here, a little there until the vista becomes suffused with colour. Now pink but darkening, the sky stages a show for the observant. Glorious colour, ethereal cloud, the sun has set but the performance continues.
Beautiful pinks and yellows fill a soft sky overhead after sunset.
Do you have warm or red elements in your room? This painting fills a room with beautiful colour all day and glows in the evening. Light with a table lamp off to either side in the evening to create a beautiful backdrop to your life.
I am an artist based in Sydney, Australia. I like to create beautiful art in a digital realism style where painting technique creates the look of the modern world as we now perceive it through digital techniques. For many years I worked as a scenic artist creating sets and backdrops for film and television, painting very large images in film studios. It was high pressure and short deadlines but what a great time! With the advent of computer graphics, I moved on to creating realistic animated content commercially, again specializing in environments and surface textures. But I have come back to painting, still the most satisfying medium. Portraits now, and skyscapes too, sometimes both on the same canvas. I work in oil and acrylics now, painting our modern world; both so rich and beautiful. I learnt so much from the modern disciplines (film work, computer graphics, photography) and found it all is relevant when painting. I use these modern elements to lift the image, to meet the expectations of the modern eye. Even flares, artifacts and scattering all work beautifully in oil to create a visually satisfying piece that is still clearly handmade, wrought by human creativity.
