Artists' Diary Week 23

A prize, some sales and meeting new artists!

Not a whole lot of painting happening just now, renovations are really taking hold of my time!

Visited my courier to collect some unsold work and to drop in and see family for a short visit.

On my way to teach on Friday got a call from Hobsons Bay Rotary Art Show to tell me I was lucky enough to win 1st in Watercolour!
'Perched'
This was followed by 2 more messages to let me know I had sold 2 paintings as well. Woot.
'Autumn Morning, Bright' Sold!
'Maintenance' Sold!



Taught my Friday class and they completed 2 paintings in the 3hr afternoon session. I was impressed. One was a no drawing exercise again and they found it liberating to not be constrained by a preliminary drawing.

                                              


 Saturday was a quick trip to Richmond to drop off paintings and then on to Windsor for a short plein air session. Only had a spare hour or so, had places to go in the afternoon!



First up in the afternoon was one of my plein air painting buddies, Marcia Reas' student exhibition. Marcia is a well known and respected artist.
