Artists' Diary Week Ending January 18th
Already the year is becoming a busy one with exhibition entries, demonstrations and workshops being booked into the diary!
Have set myself another challenge to paint at least one plein air piece a day during January but it does prove to be a bit problematic at times what with visitors, rain and very, very hot days where it is so uncomfortable to be outside one just wants to relocate to the air-conditioning! But I have managed to do quite a few so here is a small taste. All are local scenes, either at home of within a couple of kilometers!
Oh! Except for the day we went to Oatley Park which was beautiful but so, so hot!
Have even managed to make it to the studio and to block in a couple of pieces worked from plein air studies completed during my challenge.
100x100cms oil on canvas
60x60cms oil on canvas
Sometimes the wash in is the best bit as in the second one here…feel like leaving it as is!
Have been fortunate enough to have a couple of sales at the Victor Harbor Rotary Art Show in South Australia, it runs until Sunday so if you are anywhere near it is a mighty show.
This weekend is the Art Of Sydney Awards at Darling Harbour, some amazing works are for sale and I will be there on Monday to help out so why not pop in and say Hi!
