1. I’ve been asked to write for a new quarterly Australian Drawing magazine. I haven’t had the time yet to write my first article (drawing with a biro), but I hope to tackle this soon and make the second edition.
2. I now have sufficient numbers to enable my coloured pencil class to run as part of this year’s Cairns ARTescape on July 18-22.
3. I have confirmed an exhibition with The Providore Mill & Gallery (http://www.millprovidore.com.au) in Launceston. Rocking On will be open on March 3, 2013 and conclude on April 5. I am really looking forward to what will be my biggest exhibition since 1996. This collection of coloured pencil work (maybe other mediums as well) will feature rocks via realism, symbolism and abstraction.
Today’s featured image is a perfect candidate for oil pastels or oil paints. I took this photo at Cow Bay Beach in the Daintree and I love the ‘buttery’ feel that the water has caused, flowing over the objects in the sand. This is a perfect candidate for Ester Roi’s Icarus Drawing Board, more so than for the images that I posted on Friday. I’m certainly enjoying collecting images during this extended holiday.
