Experimentation & New Free Tutorials Page. My blog updates have been scarce lately, as, Ive been studying a couple of arts business and creative courses. This week I created a new “Free Tutorials”   on my Outlook8studio website , where I share some of my favorite, creative ideas and things to do.

My favourite thing to make on  Free Tutorials  is my large studio easel. I created it when I built my studio in 2000. I wanted something big, so I could work on many paintings at once. It’s a bit slap happy, (I’m no carpenter) but, works perfectly for me.

It’s Playtime. 30 Days of Creating Collage.

On Monday I start a new art course, “30 Days of Collage” by Stephanie Levy

I love creating collage and think this course will help me to free up to experiment and play instead of being so serious and restricted when creating collage. I want to feel free to play with the process without worrying about the end result. Just like when creating my abstract paintings

I love Stephanie’s Art and thought her course would be perfect for this.

I’m really looking forward to the interviews with 10 top collage artists from around the world who will share their tips and give us peeks at their art and arts practice.

We will be creating our own collage materials and learn how to decorate and paint our own unique papers. As well, I get to recycle and use up, my huge collection of vintage papers, fabrics, wallpapers and junk to make beautiful artworks and make room in my studio for new art projects.

“La Chaise Asnieres Series”
Original French mixed – media art collage. I created the collages from hand- pulled screen prints of my original sketches, vintage wallpaper layers with vintage doily scrap, acrylic paints and decorative stitching with cotton threads on 180 gsm watercolour paper. Backed with vintage wallpapers.

Jenny Davis shows some of the paintings and photographs at her Burrinja Cafe exhibition.s LAWRENCE PINDER N33FP405

A COLLECTION of paintings and photographs featuring some overseas locations are on display in a new exhibition in Upwey.

Abstraction and Beyond, featuring the work of Yarra Junction artist Jenny Davis, is on at the Burrinja Cafe until March 1.

It consists of seven framed abstract oil paintings on paper, created in Barcelona in 2005, together with mounted night photographs shot in underground locations in Paris in 2010.

Davis describes her photographs as a “non-cliched” look at Paris.

Instead of focusing on the famous monuments, she zoomed in on what was beneath the surface, photographing hidden places, including a storage area under an apartment.

Davis said she loved the spaces underground.

“There’s a life underneath the earth, and people don’t know about it, but it’s very busy and living,” she said.

“I have taken photos of the Eiffel Tower but I go under it, and look at closer fragments.”

Burrinja Cafe is at 351 Glenfern Rd, Upwey.
