Painting form :)

Here is the painted version of my take on a photo of Bea - of course, not exactly a complete Bea look-alike, but I quite enjoyed the shadows etc :)
I also changed it a litttttttttttle bit in art yesterday before mounting it so it's a tiny bit different.. What can I say? I can't help myself!

I got my L's this afternoon! About time, really.. :)

Folio 2: drawing form

As part of my art folio, I decided to draw one of the photos that I had taken of Bea using film.. So, I drew it last night :) It took me around an hour and a half to complete - but, of course, I couldn't help myself and changed things and so on. So, this scan may be slightly different from how it turned out.. But I'm still happy with it :) Even though it doesn't really look like Bea..

More ideas on their way for my next folio.. :)

Sarah and Bea's Photographic Adventures: No. 4

A few days ago, I got the photos that I took of Bea developed! They were taken on an old film camera - a Pentax, I believe ... Working with these cameras really is my favourite way to take photos and I am particularly happy with they way that this "adventure" has turned out :)

Sarah and Bea's Photographic Adventures: No. 4

That's right - a new adventure!
As part of my folio for art, I photographed Bea at school in the gardens near the art rooms :) As usual, she brought a pretty dress and I did her up and we took a lot of photos - first on an analogue camera with colour film and then a few photos on a basic digital camera. Here's my favourite so far..

Hmm.. unedited and I'm thinking I may need to have a play around with light and colours..

Last Saturday, I took part in The 300 Project with the Salvo's :) It was pretty cool :) I looked after little kids and made cookies and I feel like I did something good! There was a night thing for it as well so there were performances - like by a guy from Melbourne called Ben Abraham :) He was great and you should definitely have a listen to his music.

My French girl from Lyon is coming next term! How exciting is that?!

The one and only Regina

Last night I saw Regina Spektor! It was amazing. She is incredible. What else can I say? Her voice is gorgeous and she makes singing and playing the piano sound so effortless! She played all my favourite songs but mainly from her most recent album, Far. She went off for a bit but everyone cheered for so long that she came back and did a few more songs from Begin to Hope - Fidelity, Samson, Hotel Song.. :)
She really is incredible.
