Here are the first drawings from our introductory exercise on perspective. I love how everyone makes the exercise their own, industrial, european, moody skies and pedestrians and cars added to a basic framework.
Playing with watercolours
Today we learned more about the flexibility and scope of watercolours. Using apples and capsicums as our chosen objects we looked at how to observe light and shadows, how to build colours from light to dark using layers, and how different mediums will dictate the look and quality of the finished drawing. We used watercolours for the first drawing, then watercolour pencils for the second drawing. Love the vibrancy of these interpretations!
Hello! I live on the Gold Coast, having moved here from the Northern Rivers in 2021.
I have a wealth of experience as an artist, art educator and mentor, having worked at secondary and tertiary levels, and at the NGV and RMIT, Melbourne. I have supported adults to prepare folios for tertiary entry, and conducted art workshops from my studio. I have led field trips to the outback, and more recently conducted a course for a national health and wellbeing program.
Currently I am working with a number of clients individually, both in person and/or on-line.
Painting and drawing were natural ways to express as a child. I loved playing with watercolours, coloured pencils and paint. Making art has been a constant practice in my life, and the best way I know to respond to the beauty of nature. I have enjoyed teaching art for many years, and I would love to share the joy and playfulness of your natural expression with you.
