Whilst a dust storm raged outside i managed to get another couple of hours painting done this morning. Everything in the house is covered in a nice film of dust. I’ve never seen this type of storm in Sydney before, i think half of the desert has been blown over the city!! The next day or so will be spent sweeping it up. 😦 The painting is taking form now, i want to make the darks much more deep and dark and the lights nice and bright so there’s a bit of layering to happen yet. Happy days!!

I have an exhibition starting on June 10th at Helen Stephens Gallery. My kids went back to school today (the eldest starting high school!) and so its time to paint! I have 4 months to order some stretched linen, prime, draw, under paint, build up layers and layers of colour, add the final transparents and varnish to create about 7 paintings that people might be interested in hanging in their homes. Today is set aside to draw up a plan and set some goals to help me accomplish that end. I love the challenge!!
My next set of paintings have been inspired by these amazing Hydrangea’s. Leanne xx
