    Hi guys, so my other passion after skiing is art, and I'm having my first solo in a few weeks. Any forumites in the area would be welcome. The works are large (A1) graphites of snow gums in feminine forms, evidently a little raunchy for my mum but not for my wife. Hope to see some of you there, cheers Mike

    Glad, I'm not the only one that thinks trees have sex appeal....

    Snow gums are like little saucy alpine nymphs, but you should get across Mike & have a look at the old growth karri in southern WA.

    Big, bold Amazonian women that really throw you around when your climbing them....

    Anyway, there's 24 of them, with an older smaller (25th) one from 20 years back - and then a much bigger one in colour 1.5m X 2m high.
    I've had them all professionally photographed and digitised and they come up just as good in prints, either same size or A3. There's also a book, and cards.

    Tolkien'esque. Dark & sensual at the same time.

    Do you usually sketch one running out to Feathers & back, while treating your own flail chest, backwards, before 5.30am?

    Thanks, just graphite on good quality paper
    Hey @kaegee just graphite on paper - I always end up using staedtler and arches just thru familiarity. The big colour one is watercolours finepoint and nail polish.

    Funny. Yes in fact, often w three kids in tow. In fact the week in the Alfred was the most restful time in a long time. When they strapped me in to the Kingair I was thinking, thank christ at least I wont have any kids bugging me for a bit... just blissed out on fentanyl.

    My thoughts as well.

    What about a more devilish caricature of the one that attacked you BW?
