I have so much choice with the photos that I took from this location that I will have to think very carefully about the approach I take.
It’s not simply a case of drawing rocks for rocks’ sake. I very rarely take this approach. My art is usually planned, precise and there’s a theme or subject at the heart of it.
The problem with gathering such vast amounts of information is that one can have ‘information overload’.
I have decided to process all the 756 photos from my Darwin trip before I decide what to do. I do want to explore some abstract themes as well as studies of groups of rocks, accompanied by some symbolic drawings.
There are 3 more groups of rock photos that are waiting to be reviewed plus a vast range of landscapes. And this is only from one trip!
The good news is that I have plenty of choices, so many in fact that ‘artist’s block’ is well and truly out of the question!
On Friday I will post a report on last Saturday’s art class at Mareeba.
