WordPress tells me it’s been a month since my last post so I guess it’s time for an update.
I have been busy, Plein Air painting, gallery painting, thinking about painting and simply messing around with paint. I’m trying to build up stock for the Southern Art Trail, an event that has about 80 artists and venues exhibiting all forms of artwork for two weeks in September.
I will be exhibiting in three of the venues, two of them being Plein air exhibitions, so some of these sketches might make it to the framers. I still have a few months to do more, so I’ll keep on painting.
I won’t bore you with too much but I’ll share a few I have done this past month.
These are mostly sketches from around town, done with ink and watercolour on various papers.
Firstly, the old buildings around town.
The old Post Office on Canaletto paper.
The first farmhouse built in the Albany area.
The oldest church in Western Australia.
The ruin of the Lighthouse keepers cottage.And the new – the Entertainment Centre.
And Rats Bar with a beautiful bougainvillea growing outside.
Looking across the bay to the town.
Lastly a watercolour sketch at one of the local rivers.
