It was the hottest day of summer in Sydney today and it was good to stay in my studio and play in my journal. We have Air Con here at the Villa, but try not to use it too much, to conserve energy (for the planet) and keep costs down (for us). So it was me and an electric fan, staying very comfortable thankyou!
This face is a collage applied with gel medium. The lips are kitchen paper towel with water colour added. I didn't wait for it to dry properly so the lips have bled a little. I'm sorry she isn't smiling!
The above is a journal page all prepared ready for writing. Water colour over gesso
and a little collage and ink.
These are the geraniums in big pots outside my studio window. I will get some more, as the geraniums just love the heat that comes from the west and it is retained by the cement paving all day. I love them!
