Space…

I have had a very stressful year. And this subsequent to this, it also effected my art.

Watercolour is a medium, in which you have to be on the ball during the painting process. I do not have a “layer-by-layer” technique, but what should be a fast pace, to correspond with the movements of the water.

Adding to the above,  I got a little bored as well…and started going back to my roots of drawing.

Although a lead pencil used to be my paintbrush, I instead picked up sticks (i.e pastel and charcoal). I didn’t draw with any expectations, however, some how or another, they have ended up in my forthcoming exhibitions.

And they are more on the easel as we speak!

This has also made me miss my watercolour and also that break improved my work. I guess, like in any relationship, a little space helps the relationship become stronger…

“My Usual Please…”, (charcoal on paper)

The Jamison Valley, (pastel on paper)

Red Tailed Black Cockatoo, (although watercolour, it was a feather by feather approach, so more relaxing)

Did I mention my art is being used for the next Drummoyne Art show…?

 

One week to go

My show with Joe Cartwright is coming up next week, so it’s been a busy week framing the paintings for hanging day. If you missed my previous post, it will be launched on Thursday 28th May at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, as part of their Winter program.

Here are three works that will be on display and on sale.

Joe and I will be spending Tuesday, bringing our work into the hospital and hanging our work. I hope to post pictures from this preparation to the opening day!
