Rippleside Park, Western Beach of Corio Bay

from w.
Yesterday we drove to Rippleside Park where the Lions Club were setting up entertainment for families for Australia Day. We turned our backs on the slippery slides and donut sellers and Peceli and I drew near the sea. I drew an anchor and also the view looking back towards the city. I used biro, pastels and a fine black felt-pen. One day Peceli will post some of his pics!

Is it just me, or is your artwork getting better? I'm still enjoying it, in any case!

Some little paintings work better than others - a unity, a rhythm. I've bought pastels recently and a decent black pen so that helps.
Some pics I post are just as reference to a story, or pics for our grandchildren, or just playful exercises in looking at shapes in nature. All different purposes so some end up better than others.
I've put the pics from the last six months into plastic folders (pics that are A4 or less) and might use some to make larger paintings on canvas. We need to get some pictures ready for wedding gifts etc.

I guess painting/drawing is like improvising in jazz - fun at the time but sometimes not to listen to!

I think your art work is getting better because you are showing it, and also because you are doing more of it, perhaps I am wrong but that is one good thing about these blogs. Although mine goes up and down, how much time, how tired etc.

Penny, the commitment to keep the blog rolling on is an incentive to get drawings done, particularly because we called this blog 'Geelong Visual Diary' which means I have to find pics!
It is one year since we started the 'Babasiga' blog and posting does consume a huge chunk of time in the day. I didn't know how to do links or even post pics when we first started. I still don't know much about the mechanics behind the front page!

These are lovely - the colours work very well - yes you have been busy. We have a merry-go-round here too. It was restored by volunteers and then after a while the government tried to sell it - that really brought out the protestors. It's the only thinh=g in town for kids. I must try to sketch it sometime but it's quite difficult.
