Enjoy the Panorama

Evening on Sydney Harbour


Brisbane River from Bartleys Point


on the artists easel

Michael Cawdrey - one of our very popular artists specialising in oil paintings.  I love the bottom image with the painting "in situ" in other words - sitting on the easel at the artists studio, no longer a work in progress - the finished result.  Take a glance across the top image of the Sydney Harbour - the golden glow of the evening light sparkling across the harbour and bouncing off the famous Luna Park under the bridge - this painting is just superb - picture perfect, we can almost understand why Michael would have wanted to paint this scene.  How often do we take photos of a subject and then we are disappointed when it doesnt come out quite like we expected - however,  paint the same scene and you are able to bring the atmosphere and mood into the painting.
