In the first week of September I will be running a 3 day workshop in the beautiful village of Latrobe in Tasmania. It is just a short flight from Melbourne so if anyone would like an escape from the city I would highly recommend this area and the hospitality of the host and hostess, June and Brian Wilson of the Crowded Lounge Gallery in Latrobe.
I will be covering a variety of topics including underpainting in Schminke inks and using pastel to create some lovely effects.
Accommodation is available at one of the B&Bs in the town (lovely from what I hear) and if you would like to book the dates are September 2nd, 3rd and 4th (Fri, Sat and Sun).
Contact June Wilson on the Crowded Lounge Website www.thecrowdedlounge.com or ring on 0406772947 to discuss the details.

PSVA…BEST LANDSCAPE 2014
This year has been exciting with the PSVA show being judged by Terry Ludwig from the USA. The standard was very high and the overall winner was a worthy Rodney Edelston with an outstanding portrait. Runner up was Barbara Beasley-Southgate with a bush scene, beautifully rendered.
My landscape was awarded best landscape. It is titled ENDLESS and depicts the plateau at Tongariro National Park with a storm hitting the mountain.
