Doh- try again!

As mentioned in my previous post, I was thinking about entering the CSIRO Wildlife Art @ Discovery exhibition. Despite a number of setbacks, I managed to complete a painting and submit it- yay!! Here tis'.

I did a rather large acrylic painting on plywood which I thought wasn't a bad effort. Unfortunately- it didn't make the cut which I was very disappointed about. I didn't receive any feedback as to why it didn't make it through- so will just have to try again next year and maybe try something a bit smaller and more detailed.

The exhibition is currently running and here is a website you can view to see all the entries- WABA Art @ Discovery Exhibition. There were some amazing paintings. My favourite artworks were of aTasmanian Devil, Dingo and Cockatoos.....the detail in these artworks is incredible. I feel a bit 'try-hard' compared to these artists!

Now to think of another project? Maybe some animal sketches or a portrait of a family member?? Hmmm?
