Bruce Roberts

I live in the Blue Mountains, West of Sydney and divide my time between painting and hand-crafting fine classical guitars.

I started painting in 1980, working mostly in the field with a sketch pad and easel; endeavouring to learn the basics of drawing, composition and technique.

Today when painting, I try to capture something of the essence of a subject. It may be a light effect; a sense of scale or an interesting colour scheme, but ultimately I hope that something of what drew me to the subject is captured in the work and conveyed to the viewer.
