Racehorses

I recently spent a day at the races to get some reference material of the elite athletes in the equine world, the racehorse. I was attracted to this well presented black filly as she made her way to the starting gates in anticipation of the coming race, her dark coat gleaming in the warm autumn sun.

'Winged Things'


I have been invited to participate in a new and exciting exhibition called "Winged Things & Other Wonders of the Natural World" which opens tonight at Domain House Gallery in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. The exhibition specialising in nature themes will run through until July 29th. I have sent 4 pieces along for the show, the two of them shown here are in coloured pencil. The emu drawing is titled 'Bad hair day' and the rainbow bee-eaters whom are seasonal visitors to the area are called 'Summer Visitors'.
