I’m so very excited/nervous/pleased to be an entrant in the Drawing Point’s Going Green Competition!
The competition is open to only 25 artists and we had to interpret the theme of the comp, being provided with only a 60x60cm canvas and a tube of Atelier Interactive Permanent Green Light (Series 2).
First hurdle – the sheer SIZE of the canvas. This is the biggest area I’ve covered to date and man, was it intimidating!!
Second hurdle – incorporating the theme and colour. Most of my work is really spontaneous, so to have a couple of criteria was challenging. I decided to combine the concept of a “green/eco” type girl with the colour as a support feature. I reckon I pulled it off 😉
I have certainly RISEN to the occasion – in keeping with my “word” for this year!
Opening Night jitters are already starting! Here are the details if you want to have a look:
19 April – 12 May 2012

There will be an overall winner plus a People’s Choice Award but you have to be there on Opening Night to cast your vote.
Opening Night voters will also be in the draw to win a breakfast or lunch for 2 at Cactus Expresso Bar!
I hope you can make it, spread the word, and I will be revealing more of the canvas after Opening Night.
