Australia Workshops 2013: Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree

Kookaburra
Preparing for my workshop in Australia


Next weekend I will be taking my first workshop in Australia and as I pack my art equipment for the trip I can't resist working on a Kookaburra from a demonstration at one of my workshops here in UK last week.  I have strengthened colour in areas that I love and am gradually working around the subject  building atmosphere in the background.

My blog will probably fall quiet while I am travelling but I will have so much to share on my return home!


**************************

I have recieved many requests for further workshops in Australia as this one was fully booked, so I will be looking at the possibility of returning in 2015.

Invito - italiano
Io sono brasiliano.
Dedicato alla lettura di qui, e visitare il suo blog.
ho anche uno, soltanto molto più semplice.
'm vi invita a farmi visita, e, se possibile seguire insieme per loro e con loro. Mi è sempre piaciuto scrivere, esporre e condividere le mie idee con le persone, a prescindere dalla classe sociale, credo religioso, l'orientamento sessuale, o, di Razza.
Per me, ciò che il nostro interesse è lo scambio di idee, e, pensieri.
'm lì nel mio Grullo spazio, in attesa per voi.
E sto già seguendo il tuo blog.
Forza, pace, amicizia e felicità
Per te, un abbraccio dal Brasile.

I visited Australia in January, and discovered a beautiful bird in the garden where I was staying. It was a cookaburra. It came every morning and was eating from the hand of my cousin. I love your painting of it! Åslaug
