My residency on the magnificent King island is into the 4th week now and much drawing on site is happening and being translated into larger pastels and gouache paintings.
The workshops in mark making with ink from hand made implements of bone and local reeds and tussocks continues as do pastel and mixed media workshops held at various venues around the island.
I am holding a workshop in my Tathra studio when I return inspired by my work here and the advantages of working on site as a basis for works finished in the studio. This will be on Sat/Sun 4/5 July at a cost of $200 for the 2 days with morning tea and lunch provided both days. It will be an experience to draw the beautiful Tathra coast and translate the sketchbook drawings into a finished pastel. The workshop is called From Sketchbook to Finished Pastel
The images here are of completed pastel drawings 50x70cm worked on site in the sandunes at yellow Rock King island and sketchbook entries drawn with pen and watercolour wash on site.
