Bone’s rapidly painted ‘en plein air’ sketches were the subject of  popular one-man shows at Leferve, Redfern, The Leceister Galleries and The Fine Art Society. His remarkable productivity (he aimed to paint at least one panel a day) was only curtailed  by the fact that he died prematurely –  at the age of 54.  He painted his wife Mary at work on several occasions.
