"Into The Light" -watercolour
I meant to post this some time ago but somehow it ended up in my draft folder. This painting was the recipient of the Kath von Tunzelmann Watercolour Award at the Ashburton Art Society annual exhibition a few years ago and was inspired by the some of the beautiful rhododendron blooms that grace my garden every spring. These flowers must be one of my favorites. They lend such a blaze of colour to the landscape at the end of winter. We have just survived our first snow fall of the winter and I'm looking forward to spring.
I've not posted much for some time mainly because life has been so busy that I found it difficult to get much art work done. That's life I suppose and some things are just more important than art, namely those in our families and others we love. I'm sorry if I offend anyone by saying that, but that is the way I feel.
Anyway things are looking more positive on the art front at the moment. I have an exhibition scheduled for the end of September through October in a local gallery and am working steadily towards that. Keeping things under wraps at the moment, but look forward to more posts. Can you guess the subject for the exhibition? (Hint- not related to the picture in this post.)

I love working in charcoal and am particularly drawn to the human face, especially the character-filled faces of those in advanced years. Thanks to David Kassan who has introduced me to pan pastels - a far less time consuming process than the charcoal powder which I have used until now.
