Inspiration

We were lucky enough to have some time to ourselves this weekend so ventured out to hang around a couple of galleries. Our first stop was the Cressida Campbell exhibition at the SH Erwin Gallery. WOW! If you are in Sydney - try and go along - it was amazing and has been extended to next week. I loved her muted palette, her observations/compositions. Having studied in Tokyo at the Yoshida Hanga academy - her technique is to carve a woodblock - paint it up with watercolour and then produce a monoprint. Both her prints and coloured woodblocks are on display. They have such a beautiful quality a softer 'transfer' look.
So before i went to pick up the kids from their nanas, i set up a still life and did a sketch..

A lot of her work did feature gorgeous compositions - so i deliberately selected something a little vintage..
then i placed my sketch in Adobe illustrator and 'blocked in' some colour.. then it was a 2 hour trip to pick up the kids.. I'm not sure how much Cressida has to juggle.. but here's what i managed so far.. next i'd like to add a wee bit of texture.. have a good week.. seek out the sweetness and light..

Looks great. I need to brush up on the Illustrator skills. I fell into being the relief artist at the paper where I worked because I picked up the programs pretty quickly and had the basic design principles. I taught myself Illustrator and probably did ridiculous things trying to get the editor's ideas to the printed page.

You really have the most inspiring energy and dedication to your creativity my love! I pop in regularly to see your creations AND to give myself a kick up the bum because I know you juggle just as much as I do and still manage to spread your wings creativley. Well done and by the way, I think the still life is fab! x
