Initial sketch and blocking in shapes and darks for a commission based on Stradbroke subject. I enjoy playing with the texture of the rocks. Will post more as I go along!
More of my favourite beachy subjects in my new paintings - still lots more to do before they are ready to display but so far I am happy with progress!
These are the paintings I entered in the 2017 Wooli Art Show, and I was very exciting to win the Best of show with the painting Pandanus! All three paintings sold at the show. Very excited to work on some more paintings for the upcoming art shows.

Paintings on display at Sergio's Salon, Toowong. Changing from landscape and seascape to try elegant figures!
Last week I took my easel and paints to Yamba and ventured out into the open to paint the beach. It was quite challenging but fun, see photos. Now I have to complete the paintings at home and try to keep the spontaneity of the brushstrokes!
Sergio's hair salon in Dean St, Toowong, has kindly allowed me to hang some paintings in the open area outside the salon for public display. I am very grateful to have another venue to show my work and I am excited to now have three paintings there, see below.
My latest paintings are a bit more Impressionistic than my usual paintings. This is my impression of the paperbacks near Back Beach at Minnie Water after rain. I want to keep it loose but still a few finishing touches needed!
My name is Anne Strambi and I am an artist, mainly painting with oils. I am inspired by the natural environment. I love to paint the effects of light and shadow and the changing moods of nature and ourselves.
