Walking on Water

The kids having a blast in the 'water balls' a few weeks back when the Volvo Ocean Race was in town. Unfortunately adults weren't allowed a turn!


Degas to Dali

Did you know Auckland Art Gallery is opened evenings every Tuesday until 8pm? No excuses now not to check out the latest exhibition; Degas to Dali, a show on loan from the National Gallery of Scotland.

It's pretty impressive too with almost all the big names in modern art present. Here Degas' Study for the little 14 year old dancer in centre stage...

I think I found the people more fun to sketch though, great postures and expressions...

Warhols' Portrait of Maurice is surprising pretty nice, not just a screen print as I expected, but a screen print over thickly applied oil paint. Neat technique.
