Artists' Diary week ending March 8th 2015

Whew, what a week and I feel like I am actually starting to build up a new body of work.

Did a watercolour demonstration for the Kuringai Art Society, lovely bunch of artists and the only problem was I chose such a ridiculously difficult subject to do and couldn't finish in the allotted time. Learned a very valuable lesson and one I tell all my students
'Keep it simple stupid!

 'The Evening Market' 1/2 sheet w/c

Painted plein air around Wallace Lake on Wednesday after delivering paintings to the Portland Art Show.

1/4 sheet w/cs
 The Royal Art Society has their autumn exhibition showing, well worth a visit!  

Completed an oil over an old w/c I wasn't particularly happy with.
Did some studio work of Burano, 1/2 and 1/4 sheets 
1/4 sheet demo
An FB friend is having a solo show, too far for me but for anyone closer would be worth a look. 
 So what's next?
Will have a few pieces in this show.

So many shows on and have managed to miss two deadlines completely!

Doing a watercolour demonstration Tuesday night for the Macarthur Art Group at Narellan.

Too much happening methinks!

Happy Painting!

Artists' diary Week Ending March 1st 2015

March already, really and I was going to have so much completed by now but just haven't managed it!
I am delighted to say my painting 'The Wetlands' was selected but the judge Susie Devenport as the winner of this years' Waterbrook Prize! I am even more astounded that it was an oil......have only exhibited oils a handful of times as I am still learning the vagaries of this amazing medium.

Managed to get out early Monday morning to paint the 'Big Top' again 1/2 sheet watercolour, the circus has now gone so worked up a large sheet painting from one of my studies.
 Following are some watercolours from various classes and demos from this last week.

There are still some vacancies in my watercolour workshop at Little River Art Studios, it is a great venue and I promise a relaxed and fun time!

 And, there are only a few days left to book a place for my Norfolk Island Plein Air painting trip in June. There are still a couple of spots available. Follow the link and Maria will be able to assist you.

What's coming up...Tuesday night at Kuringai Art Society a watercolour demonstration
Deliveries, teaching and on Friday evening the opening of the Royal Art Societies Autumn Exhibition, always worth a look!

Happy Painting!
