Today's painting-Day One

This is the first day of painting, has 3 layers, background, glowing orangy colour, and laying down some patterns might be useful. Decided to have something hidden in the centre. 

In the past, after "beguiled", I was stymied about the middle of the painting, what to have there, now I hope this works!


The Sketchbook Project 2012


yiphee, Dawn received her sketchbook today, and the world tour will be coming to Melbourne for the First time, out of the States.

Dawn is excited to fill it up with drawings depicting her theme of "Hope".

On my easels-work in progress

Started out on a new painting on a primed canvas (1220x1524mm) in the colours that I liked which I used before in "Prancing in Paris". I feel these colours goes well with each other and I layered them in blocks and worked in the lines until they got somewhere.

AS IZ Gallery @ Portalington

This afternoon we visited the Bellarine artists community at Portalington. They meet at a gallery/studio space and have a lazy Sunday afternoon, drinking wine, talking and appraising art and listening to live music. Vim and Ash invited us to join in. It was very nice to meet new people and network.
