Red

Our camping trip was cut very short. Two smashed tires in the middle of nowhere on the Gibb River Road obliged us to return.

No 1

   

No 2…..  In a 20-minute interval

No spare anymore at this stage and the daylight fading beautifully on us.. 

  

The beauty surrounding us was breathtaking. Camping in the wild is always nurturing, even in blemished circumstances. 

  

  

Unforgiving Gibb Road. Certainly reknown for its challenges. 

 My expression of it all, once back home. 

The face of disappointment   
 

Very grateful to be able to express those feelings through creativity;)

Going out bush

We are getting ready for our camping trip to a remote place in the Kimberley’s in WA. I can’t wait to be disconnected from the rest of the world, where no internet connection nor wifi rein. Only the wild open sky. 

Camping is so much about being in the present moment; the pace is so different, the sounds, the amazing scenery that swallows us. 

With me of course: art supplies, art journal, camera and tripod. 

Ciao..

  

Dry

The seasons in the Northern Territory are so different from everything I grew up with. The dry season dries everything very quickly, including paint. That’s where I’d need to work with oils. Acrylics tends to dry instantly at the moment.

Sketching with Stabilo All Marks
  

  

She didn’t turn up the way I wanted, but they never do! 

This is only the second time I created a face at this scale and on my new upgraded-by-my-husband easel s’il vous plait;)
 

Joy

I’m feeling joyful about the direction my art is taking me…finding my own voice slowly. How exciting ;)
  
This one above was part of my 100 faces. She transformed quite a bit and feels more alive, with chaos and complexity. 

  

I love scribbling and marking randomly the paper,  making stains, erasing and scratching… It’s freeing and the result is often interesting, with depth…it tells a story somehow.

June challenge (suite et fin)

June challenge completed.. And I’m so stocked as I was so unsure of my capacity to actually commit each day to paint a face!!

I’ve certainly learned immensely  in these last 30 days.. Some skills seems integrated, flowing more easily and naturally, and I feel I now create more intuitively.
