Outdoor painting 2017.

Is it different this year?


Outdoor painting competes with studio & online time, teaching, sales & promotion, daily life, family life. Just like any work role, but addictive!

Seascapes or Landscapes

Sometimes there is a competition between these two. They seem to vie for attention and time.

In January I simplified the website to show seascapes. But landscapes are on the easel as well. I am continuing to paint with the Fresh Air Friday group which is mostly land- rather than sea-based.

So where do the landscapes fit?

In a special feature every now and then I think. And

A new book

To follow “South Australian Seascapes” and “Landscapes. Recent works by Philippa Robert“, I am planning a book of paintings depicting Adelaide and its suburbs.

Today I completed a small painting of St Peter’s Cathedral from Brougham Gardens, North Adelaide. Very Adelaide!

It will be the first entry for the Adelaide book. After all, it was known as the city of churches.

There are plenty more to paint and other subjects too. I can’t wait.
