UK Trip

I had a trip to the UK in August/September visiting some of the places I used to live and to catch up  with friends and family. I wanted to do some plein air painting while I was there, without taking, or carrying a lot of equipment on the plane or in my hire car.  I took a cheap lightweight fold up aluminium easel,  my system of primed watercolour paper and a a few loose items palette, brushes etc... and  trying to keep the boot of the car clean!

I managed to do 16 or 18 little sketches on my way between visits.

Portrait Exhibition

An exhibition of paintings by Malcolm Robertson
of Artists, Actors, Musicians and Individuals of the Hawkesbury
Sassafras Creek Food & Design, 83 Old Bells Line of Road, Kurrajong from 2nd August - 11th September
Open: Tuesday - Sunday 9.00am to 5.00pm and Dinner - Friday and Saturday from 6.00pm.

This was an exhibition of portrait paintings that was recently shown at the Sassafras Creek Restaurant in Kurrajong. I had a quick trip to the UK at the same time that the exhibition was on, which didn't leave me time to add to the Blog, but here are a few catch up pictures, not all the portraits are shown here
