Big tidy up in the Park.

Keeping a park the size of Hotham looking good is a huge job and there has to be a nice balance between formality and wildness. Sometimes the wildness gets the upper hand so recently there has been big clean up with brambles and overgrown beds cleared, including the conservation pond which had completely reeded over….

Justice not done!

I joined the fortnightly Hotham Park Sketchers today. It was cold sitting under the trees and I certainly didn’t do this scene justice, took a photo to prove it, but at least I did something before escaping to the cafe for hot coffee. I used felt tips and pastel to create this glorious mess.

This 60x60cm work is the second in the series inspired by looking up into tree canopies though it still has a long way to go. I have done 4 sessions so far and here are the last three, I failed to record the first. I failed to record the first.
