I'm back home again after three days in Jervis Bay, south of Sydney. I stayed in a beautiful little cabin (with an awesome bathroom!), walking distance from cafes, restaurants and the bay.
I had a wonderful weekend sharing creative space with ten other artsists, absorbing all there is to know about painting with cold wax from Judy Wise. It is quite a challenge to get the richness of colour while still remaining subtle and soft. However, it is a medium with infinite possibilities, so I will be experimenting more as soon as I get the opportunity.
These cold wax pieces do not photograph well, most of the detail and sweetness is lost unfortunately, but I hope you get the general idea looking at these pics. These are the best of the bunch that I created.
I made some lovely new friends over lunch and dinner and hope to keep in touch, it was so much fun to have their company! Huskisson is a beautiful little town and I loved every minute of my time there.
Back to earth now!
