I 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.
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 – 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!!!
…and here is another from yesterday’s session (pastel on cartridge) 30 min + a bit of fiddling
and nearly forgot – opening tonight at Rosebed Street Gallery for anyone here on the Sunny Coast 🙂
