Art Classes at Radmac

Dawn has started to give art classes at Radmac, in Ballarat.

She absolutely loves it. It gives her an opportunity to share what she has learnt in painting, both representational and contemporary abstract art. Dawn started giving lessons to the ladies at church and now she is renting an art room at Radmac.

Holidays at Mildura

During June of this year, we went for a week's holidays at Mildura to recharge and be inspired by the various different sceneries there, from vineyards, orange fields to the native forests and the Murray river.

We took some photos for Dawn to paint from and she was very much inspired by the native scrubland. She painted a couple of these sceneries in the vein of "managerie" and "puppy love".

The gnarled and twisted treeforms were quite intriguing. The depth and shade of the forests were quite interesting too, which gave her a platform to start.
