Moray Gallery

Rodney Hamel

I began painting when I was a student, water colour was my main interest until in the 1990s I was persuaded and taught how to paint in oils by a very competent painter who also lived in the Waikato.  My work was bought from about 1998 onwards and there must be about 40 or 50 paintings there where I still sell.  They are all (with I think two exceptions) portraits and landscapes, each new attempt I make draws to my attention how short a distance I have travelled. 

I have also spent a long while in the world of Art History and that might have influenced the way I paint somewhat.
