Just recently I taught two workshops on Purely Pencils II.
One in Sydney for the Australian Society of Calligraphers and the Canberra Calligraphy Society.
Here is a selection of photos from both of those workshops:
My in-class demonstration.
My morning walk
It is always a pleasure to teach for the Australian Society of Calligraphers as well as visit Sydney
my hometown on 19 years.
The venue Primrose Park sits in tranquil setting down on the harbour edge at Cremorne.
The following exercise is called "From Nature to Paper"
Using watercolour pencils to choose, as well as mix and match, the colour depicted in the flowers.
As the class skill level varied I chose Charles Rennie Mackintosh
letterforms to use depicting the initial letter of the name of the flower.
The class enjoyed this project tremendously.
Sadly I did not have my camera for day two of the ASC workshop
but I can assure you lovely work was done on their canvas and calico.
Canberra Calligraphy Society
I was delighted to be welcomed back to my home of thirty three years by my Canberra calligraphy friends.
Here I am stepping out with a couple of unlikely ex-prime minister gentlemen John Curtin & Ben Chifley.
Sculptor Peter Corlett.
Urambi Village has been the CCS home for many many years
hosting talented local, interstate and international guest tutors.
It was Floriade time of year.
This was my quickly created offering for the workshop book. A requirement ask of each and even tutor.
Thank you everyone for you participation in the classes and thank you for your permission to use your images.
Thank you also to two of the most organised workshop coordinators Shas Baker of ASC and Christine Wilde of CCS.
