Millions of doodles and zillions of sketches

Millions of doodles and zillions of sketches

Hi there, It has been awhile since my last post!  And if you check my other website www.violetanddarby.com.au or my @violetanddarby instagram – you’ll see I have indeed  been very busy.

Here are some images I’ve done lately.. as usual mostly doodles and sketchy sketches.  Loads of friends and family birthdays, which always means lots of fun drawings!

I have begun a new commission though, and it is an abstract.. Jungle Abstract though, so it should be kind of fun!

Another amazing holiday, spent up North of Perth.  Warm weather, amazing snorkelling and fishing, and the scenery … so beautiful.  Pity there wasn’t any surf… but I guess you can’t have it all!

Here’s the art and a few snippets of the place we stayed at.

So I’m getting closer to finishing this one.. just a little more to do that will I hope make it really pop.

This will be exhibited and for sale in the coming Cockburn Show Off art exhibit in May 2015.

I’ve also started getting more into gouache, which gives this really great opaque feeling, bright colours all the way too!

 

 

Show Off 7 Opens

Opened by his worship Mayor Logan Howlett to a crowd of about 200… a bit less than some of the other Show Off openings.  I blame the Royal Wedding, I know a few friends of mine wanted to stay home and watch that.  Personally I’d rather watch paint dry, although….. I was keen to see what her dress looked like.  (I still haven’t, lol)

At any rate it was a lovely night, the usual artists involved were there, plus about an extra 15 or so, in total 47 participated this year.  The Round room was packed this year with artworks.  My “Geisha” painting made it in there, so that was cool.

Details are:   Open from 29 April – 8 May with daily viewings from 10am to 3pm at Memorial Hall, Cnr Carrington & Rockingham Rds, Hamilton Hill

Here’s what  I have on show and for sale.  Hope you can drop by and check them all out. [portfolio_slideshow]
