What fun I’ve had in the last while, discovering where the Brunvigia are flowering locally! It’s been a good year indeed, but in the end I opted to sit under a tree in a friend’s garden and draw and paint a paler specimen. There are just so many colours and movement and the shade on a hot day was most welcome. I used watercolours, water soluble wax crayons, coloured pencils in a Hahnemühle Carnet de Aquarelle Journal. It’s a heavy weight 400gsm Cold Pressed Watercolour journal and perfect for outdoors as there’s no paper buckling and quite secure in our wind.
What a wonderful theme for an exhibition! I am part of an exhibition running at Art.b gallery at the moment entitled Vice Versa, curated by Juria Le Roux. Invited artists were asked to find a ‘partner’ and each were then asked to to a work of their impression of the other. This could take the form of a construction, written work, sculpture or a portrait which some chose to do, while others are more abstract works and some just simply quirky. My partner is Victor Harley, and these are our contributions… every picture tells a story. Victor’s mixed media work is entitled ‘Conversations with a disproportionate loss’, while mine is ‘The dichotomy of the seen and the unseen ‘. Read more “Vice Versa”
