For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

'Where it all Begins!' - Life Drawing workshop

 
Well, what does everyone think?....this one is a bit different to my usual nudes and life drawings.
 
Today I attended a Life Drawing workshop - 'Where it all begins!' 
The workshop is designed to remove the self critic approach to drawing and painting.
This process evokes many feelings allowing the artist to take risks in forming their own unique marks.
 
The workshops are held at Murumba Downs, if anyone is interested in attending next months workshop, contact Julianne Janbroers or Todd Whisson on Ph 3886 2865 or email todd.whisson1@optusnet.com.au

  1. Hi there Amanda!... What do I think?... This drawing/painting combines your usual great eye for exploring challenging composition... with an increased sense of energy and rhythm... using colour capriciously enhance you nude subject!

    Now that's a mouth full o' words! HA HA!!... But you asked me what I thought!

    A great piece Amanda!... and drawing is where all "good" Art begins!
