Artists' Diary Week 22

Winners are Grinners!

My plan this week was to have a rest day after the previous weekend of tutoring but needed to deliver to Northbridge Art Prize and was pretty excited to receive a call to say I had won a prize. Had to wait till Friday evening at the opening to find it was 2nd in the Works on Paper. One of the highlights of the night was judge Nick Vickers insightful discussion as to why he chose the winning works. It is a great show and well worth a visit.
'Postcards from the Kimberley'

We are doing some home renos so my painting time is somewhat diminished. There are things to select and decisions to be made!

Judged the Orange Blossom Festival Art Show at Castle Hill on Wednesday, some wonderful works on display and it is always a hard task but I hope most were comfortable with my selections.

Taught my normal class on Friday and am really trying to challenge them to do some quick watercolours with no preliminary drawing!
Quick demo with no drawing! 
'Hayshed, Yackandandah'

Had a wonderful weekend tutoring at Little River Art Studios in Grose Wold. Fabulous bunch of enthusiastic participants who were all pushed outside their comfort zones but produced some great work!
My demo 
Class work!
Another exercise without preliminary drawing 'Grampians Vista'
A wonderful barbecue was provided Saturday evening!

Was feeling somewhat tired after the weekend so plan to have a rest day!

This coming week I have paintings at Hobsons Bay in Melbourne, Breathing Colours is still running until next Sunday!
