Before opening a new gallery in the San Diego area, Shanna flew me over to California to work with her on a four day intensive surfboard painting workshop. Over the course of just a few days, Shanna and I worked together and I took her through all the steps necessary to create two awesome surfboard artworks. Some of the skills we worked on were preparing surfboards for painting, basic spray painting skills and advanced acrylic blending and portraiture. The results were two amazing boards that she is stoked to be hanging in her new gallery in March. I’ll be back in LA/San Diego from next week for 2 months – anyone wanting workshops please get in touch!

I’m packing up and heading to South, Central and North America next year and I’m cleaning out my studio – now’s a great time to nab yourself, or a loved one, a Fieldey original for Christmas!
All prices are in Australian dollars. International postage can be arranged and payment for international (non-Australia) orders is via PayPal with a 10% surcharge. Contact me for more information or to purchase a work!
Well friends, it’s almost that time again… when you have to start looking for smashingly tasteful Xmas gifts for your loved ones. If you’re after something for the person that’s got it all or something for your good self, consider ordering a Fieldey commission! The following boards have all been commissioned from yours truly and I can paint:
- Surfboards (for surfing or for the wall)
- Murals and walls
- International postage is AOK.
Finally got around to processing the final photos of Ryan’s Davy Jones surfboard that I painted a few weeks ago. It was one of my most challenging commissions, but it was awesome to have the opportunity and scope and really give my painting skills a workout.
If you’re interested in having a board custom painted, visit http://www.fieldey.com/commissions.html and fill in the form and I’ll get back to you with a quote.
I led eight workshoppers through a four step cleaning process to prepare their boards for painting and demonstrated some of my favourite old-school spray techniques using Molotow spray paint and a handy palm frond and then let them loose on the supplies.
At the end of the day we ended up with nine completely different artworks, each one a unique expression of creativeness and ready to hit the waves.
The workshop was held in conjunction with Venus Goes Gidget and hosted by myself. Molotow Australia sponsored the paints and more workshops are in the pipeline for August 2015 – so sign up to my blog if you want to come along to the next one! Big thanks also to Matt Fieldes Photography for these lovely photos.
I’ve been having a blast doing a surfboard painting workshop at Balcatta Senior High for the past 3 weeks. It’s for the Gifted and Talented Arts Program and I’m stoked with the progress these guys are making! How lucky are they to go to a school that offers these kinds of programs… the best we used to get was still-life painting and Lino cutting!
