Stormy day 1 (grey)
This work looks north across Tahunanui Beach on one of the few grey days Nelson has each year. The work focused on textured treatment of the waves and sand to get a feeling of movement and subdued light.

Stormy day 11 (green)
Working on a similar limited palette range to the first in the stormy series, the use of greens and pale purple evoke a very different mood.

The green dinghy - still life
This picture is very simple in its approach. A single, moored dinghy is the basis for a "still life" type treatment of the subject matter. The reflections hint at a busy marina full of larger boats but in essence, amidst all this, the dinghy remains peaceful, solitary.

The Haven: Tranquility
A pallette of blues and greens, reflection and smooth, blended shapes give this work a tremendous feeling of calm and tranquility. A smattering of small black rocks in the foreground breaks up an otherwise perfect reflection, with the painting essentailly being split in half by a barely visible Boulderbank.
