re-working?

caryatid_drawing2I have spent the day re-working this drawing and bringing some of the imagery from the background into the foreground and vice versa – might need to be sleeping on this a bit longer.  It is a large drawing 180 cm tall x 80 cm wide.

 

maybe this time

We have been very busy here on the sunny coast with family visiting from Melbourne; and tidying up last minute things for both my exhibition and David’s exhibition  opening in the next few weeks.

maybe this time has had quite a few iterations however the new head was added after life drawing on thursday – the sad part is that the added head has lost something when it has been stuck down – the pastel has dropped in tone and gone a bit muddy – but maybe this time it will be finished 🙂

no going back

no going back – it is official my exhibition has now been listed on the Sunshine Coast Galleries website

Opening Night is April 11th at 6.00pm  –

On another note – yesterday we spent the afternoon trying out new wheelchairs for my daughter – her poor old chair has really seen better days and just recently the tyres have started to totally disintegrate – a combination of sea air, humidity and use.  She will soon be the proud owner of a brand new Otto Bock chair – and what a chair it is – everything but the kitchen sink. She has a fantastic friend that takes her rollerblading along the coast strip and this will be fantastic – light weight and manoeuvrable  – way to go!!!

monoprint

untitledI have just starting to play around with mono prints – this was done by painting acrylic onto glass and taking a print by placing the paper on top and pressing with my hand.  I have then worked back into the print with charcoal.
