After a winter hiatus my easel is out again. There, waiting patiently, is a cellist waiting for paint.
He is on a board, and the last time I painted on board it was a bit of a wrestle as I usually paint on canvas and painting on board is a different technique. I’m not sure if it was the subject matter (beach scene, below) or the board that was the problem. The cellist will show me.
The question is whether the NSW Government should be handing control of the cemetery at Bronte sitting on some of Sydney’s most valuable real estate, to the Catholic church. The question is being decided in Parliament today.
Photos in the press have reminded me of the time I spent painting there in 2004. When you paint landscapes you never forget them. I have posted the watercolours I painted at the time to my website.
Yesterday Sydney opened up again to the 2x vaccinated and the pubs and cafes in Newtown were full of people celebrating . I have just posted a series of Watercolours of Cars in Newtown at Night. Here they are. Enjoy!
