2 unfinished Woolloomooloo landscapes


The picturesque views from my window and balcony, looking salubriously uphill.

What's omitted are the homeless camps, downhill

Gabrielle - more work in progress

not quite finished but a better likeness 

Family group - with James, Will and Harry - still a fair way ro go, not real satisfied, and the pink sky is definitely  a gtound. It's a good colour to paint over

Very sketchy drawing of her with Niall and Mum, bit, er, tired and emotional at the time - I stick all my drawings online, if only so that I can find them

With Paul

Singing on the Macquarie River, this is finished

With Paul again, at the time of her wedding

Les, Scott, Mum, Niall and Gab

Gabrielle - 2 paintings

this is more or less finished now - Gabrielle singing at a big party

With James

Singing. Live on the Macquarie

The first two paintings of my sister Gabrielle - pretty small, I'll do a couple of larger ones a bit later on.

These aren't finished - especially the first. The second needs skin tones etc

Singing. I've started a little painting based on this image

There are more of these drawings here.I'm trying to put a few paintings together in memory of Gabrielle and her life
