Drawing in the park

Drawing in the park

The weather has been pretty hot lately and it’s that time of year where everything browns off and all the grass dies back. Staying cool is pretty much all anyone can think about and I guess it would be fair to say on days like these you wouldn’t want to be a sheep. It’s hard not to feel sorry for them standing out in the dry paddocks, cramming together to get into any tiny bit of shade they can find.

Luckily for us, we are not sheep, so we braved the heat and seized the day for another of our weekly outdoor drawing sessions.

Despite the stinky weather, sitting out under the big oak tree at Tarnagulla park proved to be a perfectly cool place to gather together with our pencils, paper and other paraphernalia. Apart from the occasional truck going past it was a lovely, peaceful spot to sit and draw.

Of course, Tarnagulla is a treasure trove of old buildings and interesting features to get inspiration from, including the old burned out church across from the park. Sadly it was too hot, with no shade on that side of town, so we didn’t get a chance to do any drawings around the ruins today. We will definitely have to save that for a cooler time of year.

These weekly drawing sessions give local Tiny Towns artists an opportunity to stay connected and keep those creative muscles flexed. It’s also chance to get out of the studio. As every artist knows, getting a change of scenery is always good for keeping things fresh.

These drawing get togethers are open to everyone, and if you would like to join us, contact us via the contact page on this website, or through our Facebook or Instagram pages
