Ivan Smith has worked thirty years as a free-lance graphic designer. He has enjoyed honing his fine art skills – mainly with watercolour and ink. His paintings have won several ARPA (Press) awards for their display on newspaper covers. He has produced many commercial paintings for private and overseas sale. With a love for the Victorian bushland, he has had great satisfaction painting his current gum tree series.
Some details about some of the paintings these cards were taken from:
Cockatoo – Gum Tree Series
This peaceful setting was inspired by an autumn afternoon at Pallotti College, Millgrove. The gum trees just radiated the afternoon sun.
Kangaroo – Gum Tree Series
The setting sun warmed this scene at the foothills of the Grampians. The wary kangaroo majestically framed between the arches.
Magpies – Gum Tree Series
The magpies screeching broke the serenity of the Halls Gap dawn. The autumn colours seemed to reverberate around the gums.
