This week I got some exciting news. Actually I had to do a bit of searching to find this out but I discovered that I have come second in the Sydney Royal Easter Show poultry art section. I entered five paintings and it was ‘Mr Gander’ who has received the second placing. This is my first ever win of any sort in an art competition and a pretty exciting one to start with! We dropped the paintings off about a week ago and this weekend I hope to go in and have a look. This is Mr Gander:
This week I have also worked on two entries for the 52 week illustration challenge, the first being ‘costume’ for last week and the next being ‘transport’ for this week. Both were done in watercolour on stretched paper:
I have added these to my RedBubble shop and you can purchase these on a variety of products.
Here’s a couple of shots taken while painting these:
Finally, we had the last art class for the term. My newer students looked at colour, particularly complimentary, warm and cool colours. They seemed to enjoy themselves. Next term I will be starting a kids class at church which should be interesting.
