ART CHAT #21
DAY 9 – QUEENSTOWN (NEW ZEALAND)
21 May 2023
Today started with a lovely relaxed morning with no rush to get anywhere in a hurry. After breakfast & morning coffee we went on a cruise of Lake Wakatipu and then had some delicious dumplings for lunch. After lunch we went for a walk around the Queenstown Gardens and explored Artbay Gallery where I fell in love with collages done by Thai artist ‘Virut Penchabuse’. The sketch/painting that you see of the lady in a scarf with writing over her is my depiction of one of my favourite collages of his. You can read all the details about this day and see the ‘actual’ Penchabuse collage (scroll down to Day 9) in this post >> NZ Trip – Queenstown & Arrowtown. Meanwhile, here are the sketches I did for Day 9 (21 May 2023).
As mentioned in my Taking Stock post last week, I’m taking a small break in order to free up some more time for me to get some art done. I should be back with my next post on 1 November. I’ll be taking a longer break over the Christmas/New Year break. I’ll be reading and commenting on posts from Denyse’s link up today as soon as I can (I’m over at Mum’s at the time this publishes) but after that I’ll be absent from the blogosphere until 1 November.
Ciao for now,
Linking up with Denyse Whelan’s ‘Wednesday’s Words and Pics‘
