Some more tests with ink and tea. I'm still trying to work out how to make a silhouette shape with subtle detail inside. The paper went all wrinkly. Can you iron paper, does anyone know?
I know, showing experiments is a bit dull, but I'll have lots of new paintings to show very soon to make up for it.
I'm in a show in December at Gallery1988 that has an animal-type theme, so went to the Melbourne zoo to take some photos to draw from. And OMG! Australian Animals are so fricken lazy!! So I guess the animals in my paintings are mostly going to be sleeping.
Emu falling asleep:
Koala...ALSO asleep. Although we don't expect much more from Koalas, really.
I went to the wombat enclosure but couldn't see any wombats in there, but I bet they were asleep too.
This little echidna-guy was awake and SOOO cute. I want one.
