2016 Australian Election

Bill Shorten, Australian Labor Party starts a  scare campaign that Malcom Turnbull will get ride of Medicare. In so doing he brings former Australian PM, Bob Hawke out of the woodwork to support this campaign. 'Hawky' brought in Medicare but at one stage, to make up funding shortfalls, did suggest a co-payment. meanwhile Bill Shorten is vulnerable to the boat people issue, Mal's scare issue. The Labor Left want to get rid of off shore processing of boat people and so start a new tidal wave of illegal immigrants and people smugglers, so going back to the bad old days of Gillard and Rudd.

Note Hawke's drip; he was a bit of a drinker in his day.

2016 Portraits

I'm starting a new folder here of more recent portraits and will be adding to them over the next few weeks.

Below are some 2 minute heads done of Klara with a paint pen and with colour and shadow added later. The sated one was a longer pose I did some time ago and recently did some more work on.





'THE GOTH GIRL'
