LOTS OF DRAWINGS TODAY - a workshop with grade 5s at the merbein primary school and a talk in Mildura at the library in the evening.

but first, at last,
time to get up
 and walk to the
newsagent and have
 a coffee at artback,
a beautiful still
sunny day

chef john with ava and alfie, not to mention sally and marty the king charles spaniels enjoying their tidbits from the kitchen at
artback cafe
on the way home - jeanette's fence is bowing under the weight of her amazing lorraine lee roses, the entire length of the block and about 8 ft high

driving in, only in sunraysia . . .

Love this - it has a wonderful feel, 2 minutes
later it was gone, rubbed into a completely
different image
at merbein library, students from the nearby school did charcoal portraits after first drawing an apple, looking at light and shade    and highlights - how to create a 3D effect

concentrating on
eyes, getting the
highlight in there.
i love the diversity
of the kids' take
on my demo.

driving home - this new vineyard-to-be is staked in absolutely perfect straight lines, driving past it reminds me of the arlington cemetery in washington, the patterns created as you pass the rows.

in the evening, after the initial scare of the laptop refusing to see my slideshow of images, asha from the library managed to get it up and running for me,  phew!!!
