The members at the lunch table said, "Invite us for your book launch and an exhibition!" Wonderful and so sweet!! It has become a great encouragement. Having the exhibition and book launch is not easy, especially in a financial aspect. But I will never give up and carry it out my dream that is almost on the way. I really, really appreciate the members warm cheers.
A big surprise was that many members wanted to see my whole work in a binder. (*I was late to come, but they all welcomed me!). It made me shy. After the lunch, some members sketched outside in Central park. Me, too, went there. Brrrr, cold winter! The members were eager to know how to draw figures. Some said, "My humorous explanations often made others laugh well. Nice! We were very "hot" art lovers in a chill wind.
This is my brekkie. (*I know, blog Friends say, "Wow, your "still life" work!") Sydney Sketch Club Members say, "So healthy!" Or I might be very lazy?!
This EDiM experience has given me the concrete confidence of my drawing ability and time management. I worked out a task in a very short time and used time very efficiently. Idea and subject search is the key. Inspiration and a subject are anywhere, if you have an eye. For example, the first image was a winner's husband at the City of Ryde exhibition. I added my imagination and he is holding a bank cheque. I used it for the theme, "Money." Btw, he said he was an artist. My on spot sketching excited him so much. He almost spoke loud, "I've never seen a person like you in my life! We say we should sketch all the time and we don't. BUT you do sketch anything and anywhere!" Yes, that's my only assets. Sketching is easy. All what we need is "paper, one pencil and a few minutes." It has built up current Sadami and still my skills are developing positively.
Anyway, did you enjoy the daily sketching in May? Already Sketch Club Members look forward to a next meeting and want a next challenge. I'm very happy to be surrounded by such wonderful people. How supportive and friendly!
Then, my blog will go back to weekly again. Thank you very much, all blog Friends. Your support has enabled me to get through this marathon task. In turn, I will keep up drawing more than ever and create good work for you! I love you all, dear Friends!
Friends, Happy Painting!
