Heather - Pastels

Practising the art of portraiture I'm finding is an enjoyable challenge, requiring the learned visual skill of knowing what to leave in and what to leave out. 
I was captivated by the floppy hat Heather chose to wear while posing for our group.

Portraiture practice with a new group. Thank you Drummoyne Art's Society. 

Faces are the most interesting things we see; other people fascinate me, and the most interesting aspect of other people – the point where we go inside them – is the face. It tells all. (David Hockney)

Cute As - 24 x 18" Acrylics on stretched canvas - NFS

These gorgeous kittens were a delight to paint for their crazy cat loving owners. Capturing their cute little faces, that amazing pose, and the opportunity to brush letter their names was inspirational. 

Sketch notes - August 1-September 2 
Sketching while away on trips can be good fun.These small watercolour artworks bring a smile to my face when I reflect on a fabulous recent trip to NYC, London, San Francisco and Hawaii.
