Actually Grey by Tim Mooney

This house is not painted. It is bare render!

So I painted it.

The house was recently completed and was designed by Milton Drafting. The house painter (Steve Quinn) was standing out the front one day and he told me he had just finished doing a quote for the painting. When I asked what colour Steve said ‘Not the outside’, ‘Just the inside … the outside stays the way it is’. Plain render.

And it looks great so I sketched it.

‘The Mook’ by Tim Mooney

‘The Mook’ is one of my favourite classics. Recently reloved it is just sitting there.

This classic Australian fibro beach house at Mollymook, called ‘The Mook’, sits quietly behind the sand dunes in anticipation of the next guests. So in anticipation of a possible near future addition I thought it best to capture it in its near original condition.

Done this afternoon in very challenging conditions … sitting on a cold rock facing straight into a freezing Sw wind. This was the first time I have tried to interpret a wave. That’s the white thing on the water in the foreground. Being a long weekend and school holidays it was great to see the many families ‘kicking around’ the seascape. The yellow ‘things’ in the water are ocean bouys for small craft.
