Next Friday 27th at 11 am this exhibition will be launched.
Featuring an amazing selection of art forms, it is always a great event.
I have been exhibiting here for a few seasons and will have five pieces on show.
When we took the pieces to Castlemaine last Tuesday there were already heaps of work ready for the curators to display.
One of my works received an intriguing compliment from a fellow exhibitor when he said ‘ Gee that is sharp, it almost looks like a photograph.’ He was surprised at my reply…’It is a photograph’
I love painting with light!
It is a corker of a hot day here in Central Victoria so what better way to spend the day than indoors working on my art.
One artform I love creating is a Digital Photogram using local flora. While most of these are printed in full colour, I do print some in Black and White with the view to hand colour them.
This is what I have been doing today on a small test piece taken from a larger work.
Please contact me directly for prices, or if you are on Facebook details are also there.
All are gorgeous Giclee prints on sumptuous quality photo paper including Gold Fibre Silk.
Sizes range from A3 to A3plus.
Busy organising some of my limited edition prints to sell just in time for Christmas giving. These prints will be unframed so the prices will be lower than normal. All are gorgeous Giclee prints on lovely paper. Hope to have more details later today. Please contact me if you wish to be notified personally when ready.
Just setting up for a new photoshoot for Golden Landscape and am so happy with the workbench Bill made me.
It is a multi purpose bench and today I am using it as a base for a black backdrop. Able to hang velvet over back stand and then clip it onto the workbench for extra stability.
There is plenty of space for me to lay out the golden grevillea branches.
Today I popped over to Wesley Hill Bake House to take the opportunity given to hang some of my Artwork. I’d like to thank Robbie Bayliss for the opportunity to show off my work, along with other local artists.If you would like to buy some of my work and are in the Castlemaine area pop in to see Robbe and the crew.
My two pieces for sale are “Nanna’s teaset #2” edition 1/1 and “Mum Mending”, each piece is for sale $180 each.
Or you can contact me directly to buy these pieces or see what else I have to offer.
Preparing to photograph a genuine gold nugget is for me a once in a lifetime opportunity: I wanted to get it right.
So the morning of the shoot I spent several hours experimenting with lighting techniques as well as working out exactly what I wanted to capture. This included my favourite use of black velvet as well as a ready made light tent, one speed light and an extra light diffuser. My lenses of choice were the Tamron SP 90 mm f2.8 and the Pentax 35 mm f1.4.
I knew that for my final work for the Golden Landscape 3AMPs Exhibition I would be using these images in creating work via creative digital imaging software but I also wanted to try some in camera photography.
So while trying out some double exposures I created this piece and quite like it.
