Guessing Competition Raffle

Friday, March, 25, 2011

First prize in the guessing competition drawn on Bald & Beautiful Day 4th May at Western Suburbs Leagues Club.

Value of this beautiful art work by David Perks is $4000.

“Ship And Tugs, Newcastle” (August 1992) is selected from an impressive body of oil paintings by David Perks depicting Newcastle Harbour from the 1970s onward. Originally from Sydney and now living on the Mid North Coast near Wingham, David became fascinated by the life of the harbour and the interplay of light, water and shipping of all sorts long before the harbour attracted other contemporary artists.

The scene is instantly recognisable to any Newcastle resident or visitor to the city and captures the dazzling effect of golden afternoon sun on the water as tug boats guide a ship to its berth.

Many of David’s Newcastle Harbour and beach scenes grace homes and boardrooms in the city, as will this example at the conclusion of the Bald And Beautiful raffle.
