Peli Can Can is a collage of pelicans I photographed whilst on our last holiday at Noosa. It is actually photographs of the same pelican who only stayed for as long as he thought you may feed him. The pastel will be in colour on aubergine colourfix pastel paper. I going to be busy because I also have an oil painting to finish!!
I have decided to use this composition for Daffy and to do him in graphite!
I feel I have finished this portrait of Beemer now. Sometimes it is hard to know when to stop! I have added more dark to darks and brought the highlights out. I think I am ready to begin some thing in colour now. I am having pastel withdrawal symptoms.
I have added more but I still need to darken the darks and lighten the lights to achieve greater contrast as I work towards finishing the portrait. I love my new electric eraser but I have not used it much yet.
Hello! My husband and I have just been for a fly/drive holiday around Tasmania. We flew from Brisbane to Hobart, hired a car and drove from Hobart to Port Arthur to Bicheno through St Helens to Launceston and then to Strahan. We flew back to Brisbane after seven days of adventure from Launceston. We experienced Many things but my favourites were Mt Wellington at Hobart; Fairy Penguins at Bicheno; Cataract Gorge at Launceston and a Gordon River cruise at Strahan where I got to skipper a 4.2 million dollar catamaran (Under the close eye of the skipper of course)!!
