"New Season" heads to Shanghai!!!

This painting ("New Season") made the initial cut for the Zhujiajiao watercolour show at Expo 2010 in Shanghai! This is so exciting for me! (i.e. i just had to share the news). No guarantee of making the final cut - but to get this far makes me both proud and humble!

warm 2010 sketches

the warm side of the palette comes out in summertime. and it is summer here in australia. these sketches all use the same premise. gold tempered with scarlet as a first wash. clouds introduced in blues, violets and indigo.

blues and violets are then added for vague middle ground shapes. then, of course, one goes off the rails entirely in my wet-in-wet way. sigh.

and then, back again. anyway, this is how the hew year has started for me. hope all is well with you...
