Hello, checking in with an art update; after a ‘creative block’ of 6 months I am not even kidding with that one), I am finally working on my piece to donate to the 2017 Dandelion Wishes Charity Gala.
It’s been a year in February since the last one, where I donated my ‘That’s Melbourne’ portrait artwork. This gala raises funds for the new Monash Children’s Hospital, opening early 2017.
I find it hard to start work on something I visualise in my head, but have not a single reference image I can copy (like a celebrity portrait).
Copying a reference image is great for technical skill but doesn’t to a whole lot for flexing your imagination.
