New direction

So towards the end of last year I took an oil painting course at the Jika Jika Community Centre with Bonny Hut. It was fun, the course was super relaxed and there was plenty of painting involved.

Not so sallow lady

This is the painting that I did during the course. I call it “Not so sallow lady” – as the original that I copied it from was of a very miserable looking lady!

In the last two weeks of the course I got to start working on my second piece. I chose a photo that I had taken during 2014 in a Tall Order Giraffe Encounter experience at the Werribee Zoo (lots of fun – highly recommended!). It took me awhile to finish it, with lots of rework, but I got there in the end!

Double Trouble

While I sort out my next oil painting project (!!), here are a few photos of my giraffes in development. Hope you all had a lovely new year!

Before I got a proper easel – had to work on the bench in the courtyard!
