Animal Farm

Over the Easter weekend I took part in the Bendigo Easter Festival Paint Out, where ten local artists were tasked with painting festival action. We were expected to paint for at least three hours on each of two days.

I accepted the challenge of moving beyond the proverbial comfort zone, and found it an enriching experience engaging with the public as I worked. Some children told me I was a good artist, despite evidence to the contrary in the early stages of the painting.

I produced this acrylic painting, entirely from life, of the children’s animal farm in Rosalind Park. I think it works quite well.
