En Plein Air






Late last year, some members of the Thursday night Life Drawing group and I discussed heading outdoors for a spot of landscape painting. It's a new experience for me and I am determined not to let my earlier frustrations with the landscape deter me. Val, the group convener has a property in the Gold Coast hinterland and offered to host us. So Ryan, Adolphi and I made the drive south.
Full of scones and tea, we headed out on the walking track, picked a spot and got to work. I'm not sure what I though I might achieve before we set out but it probably wasn't what I ended up with. Still, I am not displeased with my work and I think I'll give it another go soon. Plus the long drive allowed for plenty of opportunity to chat about art, artists and all sorts of other stuff.

  1. Go on, get out there!! Nice work having another crack at the landscapes. Reminds me of that Albert Einstein quote: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." : )
