Keeping a journal is a compulsion once it has become a part of research practice. Putting paint to paper is one way of making a mark. The above watercolour filled the pages after a visit to a South Arm beach. Below is a gouache of my sisters house nestled in the trees she planted years ago.
The third is an acrylic sketch of Kata Tjuta painted from memory. There is something very relaxing about painting! Whether or not viewing them has the same effect… well that’s another matter.
