The Creative Plan – Watercolour Pencils Day 5

I headed out to the Sydney Botanic Gardens for the last day of my watercolour pencil project. The plan was to spend some time drawing tree trunks, particularly Moreton Bay fig trees. For those who are unfamiliar with them these trees have wonderful undulating folds that make up the entirety of their trunk, like heavy... Continue Reading →

The Creative Plan – Day 3 Graphite Pencil

I’ve never really been into pattern/shape making. It’s something I would only subconsciously do when I’m in a meeting or on hold wth customer service purely to stop me from falling asleep. Don't get me wrong, patterns are cool. I love patterned fabric and am envoius of designers who can balance multiple shapes as well... Continue Reading →

Hey St Peters!

Who likes storage containers?! I'm not talking about any Scandinavian interlocking eco-friendly pantry organisers. I'm talking about the big mac of storage containers, like so... You know you are an artist when an industrial site gets you excited. So on a cool winter's day I met up with the Sydney Sketch Group in St Peter's,... Continue Reading →

CNY 2017

Chinese New Year came a lot earlier this year as it follows the lunar cycle rather than a set calendar date. I missed most of our lion dance performances this season so only did Friday and the weekend but that was exhausting enough! Usually I feel this tired after doing 2 weeks worth, not three...

Thankfully it was only in a small section of the grounds as it is one large mother of a cemetery. This is my third or fourth sketching venture to a cemetery so won't bore you with the reasons...

So after some "serious" art I wanted to splash out and have some expressive fun. A few months ago I came across a link to the... Continue Reading →

A rainy weekend full of sunshine

Two years ago I started to meet up regularly with three of my sketching friends to work on our Sketchbook Projects. We enjoyed the catch ups so much that after the project was over we decided to continue the drawing sessions but work on our own projects. We sketch, eat and chat (not necessarily in that...

Abu Dhabi Do!

In February I was given the exciting opportunity to travel to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to play with TaikOz. A huge honour, considering I'm not one of their more dedicated students. It was a unique advenutre and a bit of an insight into the life of a professional touring musician, and it... Continue Reading →

Sydney Open Day

The Historic Houses Trust of NSW ran a "long" weekend event called Sydney Open. With the co-operation of several private and public buildings in the city centre they opened their doors to the general public for a look round. It was a drawing opportunity I could not miss, so went along Friday night with the Sydney Sketch... Continue Reading →
