Berlin Style ...

I'm re-visiting photo albums from my last trip to Europe and wanted to share some of my pics of Berlin.  It's such a wonderful city, full of inspiration and some pretty good street art..

And because these particular pics are missing people.. here's a photo of a girl in Mitte ...the  area really is full of the young, arty and beautiful..oh and a few tourists now..

A New Project..

So I received this in the mail today and I'm excited to get into it!

I'm contributing to this..

I'm kind of 'late to the table' the book is due to be returned to the Brooklyn Art Library postmarked by 30 April (yes 2012!) but I have made a bit of a start.. 

From the themes available for the project I selected 'Thread and Surface' not sure why just seemed to feel right for my work

A Walk in the Park - Finding Pattern

The weather has been really beautiful in Sydney these last few days so I took myself off to do some sketching at the local reserve and picked up some inspiration along the way...

 I usually do some observational sketches, stare at an object quite a while!  start to pick out the details - simplified, abstracted whatever I feel like....

... then go off on adventures..and maybe take a moody pic at the end!

Colour Crazy - peep onto the drawing board

Seems like I'm just surrounded by bright colour at the moment and I'm not complaining - in fact my drawing board is overloaded with hyper colour doodles right now!

And I've been wearing a 'little bit?' of colour over the holiday season!
