Shells


shells-01

I recently travelled to Baker’s Beach on the north coast to take some photos of shells and sand as preparation for my commission that I hope to start within a fortnight. It occurred to me that shells have played a fairly prominent role in my art over the years so I thought I’d show a few examples on my blog over the next week.

Today’s photo is of two drawings that I did some years ago that now have their home in Sydney. As you can see by the strength of line, this was a very rapid and spontaneous pair of drawings that I did from observation, not my imagination. I like the freedom in this kind of work. Some of my drawings tend to be a little “tight” and I must do more less planned work!

Yesterday it was 39c in Launceston (a record) and it was very hard to paint even in the garage, but I managed to make inroads with my Crucifixion painting. I shall post an update in the next few days. I have also decided on my framing for my “Bread” exhibition on April 4. Next week I shall choose the 13 drawings I intend to exhibit and clean them up ready for framing.
