Finally cracking on with this "Bali Davidson" inspired design....all the Harley riders are cringing right now at my shitty joke!! 😂

Jokes aside, I'm doing 3 creatures from Balinese mythology, this is Garuda on the rear guard and on the tank I'll be painting a Barong and Rangda which are the King and Queen of good and evil spirits. I've mixed my own metallic brown/gold/copper paint for this one. Many hours to go, I'll keep you posted 👍

Triple clear coat on these red babes today, love the vibrancy and depth in these House Of Kolor candy paints, can't wait to get it out in the sun for some pics!

(Hopefully it gives you the option to watch it in HD, it's pixellated as hell otherwise!)

 “Fleeting Thoughts”

After taking out the best contemporary prize at the Bayside Art Show, I’ve used it as an omen to take a step away from hyper realism and into something a little more interesting and experimental. This is the result of using my knowledge of how automotive paint works and the effect thinners and over reduced clear has on a work. What would normally be seen as a destructive process gives way for a new and interesting way to create. It’s a combination of familiar products and unfamiliar process. It’s a hell of a lot of fun and I’m going to be starting some large works using this newfound enthusiasm to produce work that is very different from anything I’ve ever created.


“Best Contemporary Painting” Bayside Art Show Award, August 2015

I was lucky enough to win the best contemporary painting award at this years Bayside Art Show held at the Sandringham yacht club. I snapped up $500 and sold the winning piece which was titled “Washed Away”. It was done on an aluminium composite panel with automotive basecoats and finished in resin and automotive gloss 2 pac with a metallic blue pearl dusted throughout. Around the perimeter I also hooked up a 6 LED lights and a rechargeable battery pack just for something a little different.

The painting is of the Brighton bathing boxes. A huge storm surge hit port phillip bay with 60 knot winds and produced an unusually high tide which lapped at the steps of the boxes, even occasionally pushing water passed them into the dunes behind! It was so unusual there were actually waves breaking in front of the boxes and I couldn’t resist the urge to try and catch a few wind chopped waves in freezing cold water and blinding winds! Yes, I’m aware that I’m a little crazy ;)
