2022 Archibald Prize Finalist – Staying Strong
‘Would you like a portrait painting of a family member or a landscape painting of your favourite holiday scene?’
I am a Canberra based artist and have been painting since 1985. I am a self-taught artist specialising in drawings and oil paintings of portraits, landscape scenes, animals and flowers.
The early Australian Impressionists, in particular Sir Arthur Streeton have inspired my work. I have painted with the late Reginald Campbell, one of Australia’s greatest artists and ‘Master’ portrait painter and have been strongly influenced by his work.
My website www.rosstownsendgallery.com displays examples of some of my previous paintings. Please browse through images on my website and contact me should you be interested in purchasing or commissioning a painting.
