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…?

 

Slowing down…

I am currently having a small break. My last show for the short term was The Oyster Bay Art and Craft Show, where I was feature artist. It was a great event for the community and visitors still came through the doors despite the wet weather.

I sold four of my paintings at the festival and look forward to showing my work again next year.

I was also fortunate to meet some of my buyers, which is a rare pleasure.

This is one of my sold paintings, ‘Sunset Theatrics’.
