Walked out of the James Tyrrell exhibition down to the new Gallery of Contemporary Art in Canberra ... On the way there was a shelter with these wonderful cones in the roof with a laser light roof. So the last image here is like the view from the Tyrrell structure 'Within Without'. .... Wow!

They look like a "how to paint" class. But there really is no other way to get this composition right. Grid it up and measure and keep measuring. The final painting is drying at present. We have had a great week with a terrific teacher Charlotte Thodey and a talented group of classmates.
The eggplants were the first painting I did at the summer school Painting Still Life with Charlotte Thodey. I cannot get the color of the aubergines right in the photo... They are really quite purple in the painting. I cannot find the instructions for setting up white balance correctly on my camera at present..
