Anchorite Godfrey Miller

Another solitary painter in the vein of Ian Fairweather.

I remember trying to paint like Godfrey Miller in the 1970s. Not very successfully.

Miller’s experience of lying wounded for many hours on the battlefield of Gallipoli was to change him forever.

From a vigorous, athletic boy to a reclusive painter.

Although not too reclusive, as he did teach drawing at the National Art School in Sydney in 1948.

Beautiful drawing.
