Des Lowry, Little Bourke Street Chinese New Year

Des Lowry, Little Bourke Street Chinese New Year, 20 April, 2020
This painting is based on photos I took on Feb 4 in Lt Bourke St of Chinese New Year celebrations.  I cut the 'lion' from one photo and pasted it into this scene, because he (she?) is looking at the observer. Another challenge was how to include the large red lantern, the parking sign and the Chinese characters without those 'supporting actors' distracting from the main actor (the lion).

Wes Franklin, Dodgy Letter

Wes Franklin, Dodgy Letter, 22 April, 2020
Isolation has demotivated my creativity, so these were made just for the fun of it. Lettering was drawn on hand-made recycled Dodgy paper (dodgypaper.com) using Posca paint pens. Check out their range of Dodgy paper, it's beautifully textured and contains remnants from its previous life.

I set this up as my morning painting and worked on it over many days until the light shifted.
