Hastings waterfront: In 2021 Jonathan relocated to the Western Port Bay side of the Mornington Peninsula. The move has been really positive. He describes it as a sea change / tree change. The area is loaded with coastal views as well as natural bush, mangrove swamps, wetlands and wonderful wildlife. Western Port is part of a huge biosphere, just one of four in the whole of Australia. It is a great locale to acquire inspiration for paintings. The one above is the Hastings waterfront, an area called Pelican Point. Jonathan paints using acrylic paint and loves experimenting in different styles as the two paintings below indicate.
Andalusian horse and flamenco dancer
A stormy day at Lifestyle Bittern
Having visited Spain a long time ago Jonathan still has fond memories of that wonderful country. The horse and dancer painting were inspired by the many attractions of that visit.
Jonathan lives in a resort community. The storm picture of the village was an experiment in a different style with trees, gardens and sky painted almost in a palette knife approach.
