Peregrine

110 x 77 cm

$3500

I painted this after a visit from a falconer who brought his Peregrine over to my studio for a visit. I could just see him high in the clouds, waiting for a bird to break away from the group. I airbrushed the clouds first, then moved the sketch around to find the most appealing area to place the falcon, and finally added the smaller birds to finish off, 

One of my favourite paintings at the moment.”

Pacific Gulls

Acrylic w/airbrush

78 x 56cm

Artist’s note: “Pacific Gulls as seen on a mooring post in the Port River, South Australia. Painted after doing a few colour sketches on a field trip. I painted the water in gold and greens to give the feel of deep mooring water.”

White Eyed Duck

White eyed Duck

Acrylics on canvas w/airbrush

43 x 53cm

$850

Artist’s note: “This is one of a series of paintings of Australian ducks I did over a few months. The white eyed duck was a pleasure to paint as I had already sketched the subject quite a few times so I couldn’t wait to get those colours down on the canvas. I enjoyed using airbrushes for the water effects. Water is never still and always a challenge to paint.”

Blue-Billed Duck

Blue billed Duck 

Acrylics on canvas w/airbrush

43 x 53cm

$850

(From the series of Australian Duck paintings.)

“This is how you often see Blue billed ducks. They sit differently in the water, often with their tail down, and that blue bill – unmistakable! Changing the water effects on each of the series became easier as I went on to each one.”

-Roger

 


Flight

Acrylic on panel w/airbrush

-Roger

 


Swamphen

Swamp Hen

Acrylics on panel

59 x 79cm

Artist’s note: “One of many paintings I’ve done of these birds. The Swamphen’s colours inspired me to paint this, the blue breast and the red of the bill and shield on the head. They are often over looked as ‘just a common bird’, which is a great shame.”

-Roger

$2600.00


The One That Got Away

(Quails)

Quail

Acrylics on panel

83 x 102cm

Artist’s note: “I painted the Quails when a perfect specimen was brought into my studio (it happens from time to time). I brought it back to life in the painting. These quails are well camouflaged. “The one that got away” refers to the egg that has rolled from the nest.”

-Roger

Superb Blue Wrens

Superb Blue wren

Acrylics on canvas

54 x 67cm

Artist’s note: “I paint superb blue wrens often as they are such  characters. There one minute, gone the next! The idea for this painting was conceived after watching the blue wrens in a nearby park. The weathered gate and moss seemed a perfect setting for them.” 

-Roger



SOLD

Black Ducks

 

Acrylics on panel

Gone Fishing

(Azure Kingfisher)

Gone Fishing 

Painted with acrylics on panel. 

45 x 66cm

Artist’s note: “The painting of the kingfisher started with a scene I was sketching, a flash of blue caught my eye and I realised a kingfisher was flitting around. So I put the him where I thought he would sit in the painting, showing how small he is in comparison to the rushes.” – Roger

Acrylic on panel.

A Barn Owl in a tumble-down shed. I like the mottled colours and the pure white face. A real challenge to get right…to have the wings for the detail in my collection made life a lot easier. My favourite owl to paint.” – Roger
