sydney views

Looking out from the 15th floor of the Citigate Hotel, Sydney.
The long shot doesn't really show the small heritage buildings that still exist tucked away between the tall modern buildings

This is the roof the building which is the restaurant to the hotel - taken from the 15th floor but looking down.

Daintree dreaming

My challenge in the new year is to transform this into and (embroidered) canvas work. It started life as a charcoal drawing i did some time ago. I photocopied it and then over painted it. I have been stuggling with how I will transfer the pattern. The penny dropped - photocopy it again and cut up the copy for templates.

I have been hoarding some baramundi leather which I bought in the night market at Cairns ages ago. I am finally ready to cut it up and will apply it as well.

There is a lot of black in this drawing and i am contemplating painting the canvas with black drawing ink in some places rather than stitching it.

Playing on the internet and not stitching

Have changed the template and added a little to the blog - decided that I am not making new years resolutions this new years eve but affirming old ones:
  • theme
  • sample
  • visit my work each day
  • draw
  • create a body of work
  • have fun

more drawing

Love playing with charcoal - the life drawing class I have been doing has given me a lot of confidence. Here is a drawing done whilst others were watching TV.
