Annual 3 days workshop at Merroo Centre (combined Art Societies) in May was this time an absolute success. I had the pleasure to paint with an amazing tutor Chan Dissanayke. His teaching techniques are superb, hi-tech equipment enables everybody to see his progressive method of painting. Loved every minute of it.
Watercolour Size 38 x 28 cms
After the rain the walk was just amazing. The majestic grey gums intermingled with sparkling lime green gums with bark peeling down their trunks, large boulders covered with lichen and the bushes with water droplets. A true feast for the eyes.
(I have not had a brush in my hand for nearly half a year .... it is amazing how much one forgets ... this painting was a true labour of love)
Watercolour Size 54 x 36 cms The old historic quarter The Barrio Historico is under Unesco World Heritage. A quaint litttle township and well worth the visit by ferry from Buenos Aires. This watercolour is a combination of 3 photos - each photo had something which I loved - be it the little pottery dolls in the window of an Art Gallery, the old timers, the rustic chair and a table, the weathered walls on the dwellings or the uneven stone pavers - forget the stilettos. This painting was a labour of "love", took an extraordinary long time to complete.
