As many of you know I love buildings probably as a result of growing up in Bendigo where I fell in love with the weatherboard miners' cottages and the wonderful red brick buildings.

The good news is that there is another similar painting on the way though it wont be in the St Kevin's Exhibition.

Where a painting is available as a canvas print it will be shown on the respective page. Sizes available and cost is also given.

At the moment delivery is only possible within the Melbourne area as I need to check the print before it is forwarded onto the purchaser.

Thank you for your interest in my work. Anne Newman

Learning to paint landscapes

I've been up in the Grampians learning to paint better landscapes with John Wilson. John is one of Australia's best landscape artists and also one of the best teachers I have met. He s quite brilliant and generously imparts his techniques with patience and insight.
