market market

to market to market

i've started a series of market illustrations. i like all the textures and layers. i plan to go to the markets in gleadell street richmond on saturday morning and takes some pictures. these images are based on some lovely markets in venice where there was such pride taken in every stall. i'd like to use these images for the cook book that i have been working on with adrian.

these pictures will have more colour in the end, but thought i would show you where they are at.

the prints are about islands and boats out fishing.

the new studio

i moved house and studio over the last few weeks. it has been wonderful to finally settle in. atticus has a friend (chico) in the studio and the two of them are thick as thieves until they are both so exhausted that they crash!

the picture of the window and parsley in the sun is my desk at home in the front room. it is a lovely space to do nice things like sewing and spanish homework, story boards and drawings.. in winter we can pull the arm chairs in there and have the fire going.

the studio in brunswick has slowly been getting set up to be able to print again. lately i have been working on illustration stuff and photographing... good projects to start off in a studio. there is a great atomsphere there. we are right by triple r radio station and a wonderful oval for doggy runs.
