I had two goes at this painting - you will notice that on the first photo with the title on it that it is different to the one shown in the slide show. This is because that first painting, unknown to me until I had nearly finished the work, was completed on the back of the canvas! I thought when I started to paint that it was a bit absorbent and promised myself to put another coat of gesso on the sheets in future. I really notice when I tried to do some fine lines and they turned out as blobs! Anyway, I really enjoyed the second painting featured in the slide show.

This South African War Memorial is placed at the corner of North Terrace and King William Street, close to the gate of Government House. It is a fine memorial made of bronze and granite. It looks imposing at any time but particularly in the rain with Parliament House as the back-drop.

A water colour practice piece. Comparing acrylics and water colours, I found that the shift if colour from wet to dark is greater in water colour. Of course, water colour dries lighter and acrylic dries darker. This was mainly an exercise in figures and sails.

All who know Victor Harbor know of its landmark - The Bluff. Its distinctive shape welcomes visitors as they drive into the seaside town from Adelaide and a visit to Victor Harbor is hardly complete without driving to the lookout on the Bluff and marvelling at the views of the coast in all directions.

One of the nicest places to be in the rain, is near the museum on North Terrace in Adelaide. In the event of a real downpour you can always pop into the museum, art gallery, library or the Royal South Australian Society of Arts for shelter!
Rain at the museum - acrylic on canvas - 90x90cm
Available at the David Sumner Gallery from February

The playground of South Australia - Victor Harbor. The bluf is certainly its landmark. You can drive half way up and the views are spectacular in all directions. Sun and shadows drift over the face of the bluf.

There isn't a prettier sight in Adelaide than North Terrace when it rains late in the day. Reflections and lights play their part in the magic.
