Imaginative Realism  

Graeme's greatest passion in painting, is the learning. 

Learning what can be achieved with paint and colour seems to be an endless journey for him. 

The collecting of new methods and techniques that give better and better results in his works.

His favored subject, young women, he says is because they are the hardest to paint. 

The luminosity of the flesh colours is so challenging and playing with the chiaroscuro effect can be so satisfying. 

One only has to see his paintings in the flesh to see his achievements in this area.

Having studied in many art schools in his early days he still likes to learn on his own admitting to be mainly self taught.

 

Learning is a slow process taking weeks to paint one painting just to try out one idea that may or may not work 

and may ruin the entire painting. So progress is slow.

He has studied at Paddington Art School 1986, Pennant Hills Life Drawing 1987, Sydney Art Station 1988, 

Julian Ashtons Art School Sydney p/t (drawing, painting,etching), 

Studied Etching at Duck Print, Professional Trade - Sign-writer.

2017 is shaping to be a major year in his career. After having a successful exhibition in October 2016 

he has been asked to have two major exhibitions in 2018.
