hooked on genesis

Leslie Tribolet lives on Kauai, Hawaii with her husband. She comes from an artistic background. Her dad was well known south-western USA sculptor Jack Black, and her great uncle was Jean Smith – a famous painter. She was always doing crafty things, and loved art, but was only interested in pencil as her medium of choice. Surrounded by the beautiful colours all around her on Kauai, she decided to take up painting five years ago after battling cervical cancer. She began by taking a watercolour class from a local artist. While the results made her happy, she felt that every painter on Kauai painted with watercolours, so she looked for a new and different way to paint. Leslie was diagnosed with breast cancer a year later. Again being tired and sore, she…

ELECTRONIC PEN FRIENDS Dear Editor, I thoroughly enjoy each month of Artist’s Palette magazine. It is full of interesting articles and some truly marvellous works in watercolours, pastels, oils and gouache. What a marvellous idea Lang’s Gallery is … a place where people can have their work on show even if they are not professional artists! It would also be a wonderful idea for people to be able to email like-minded people to discuss ideas and offer suggestions. Maybe you could suggest that people send a letter to the editor including their email address (like a pen friend, but by email); and interested people could email each other. I got the idea from one of your articles in which you mentioned that a lady emailed someone from another article and they have been…

ARTIST’S PALETTE magazine seeks to showcase the works of talented Australians producing art at a whole range of skill levels, whether they are accomplished creative people with a long history of achievements or beginners (of all ages) striving to build their identities and reach their particular artistic goals. This ‘Gallery’ segment provides a place to display pictures by people who may not have the means or the opportunity to be extensively featured in our magazine. Submissions are sought from such people for future Issues. In each Issue we will seek to display some photographs of works from ‘new’ or unfeted artists – as a means of encouraging their creativity. In the very near future we will also seek to offer a small prize for the most outstanding person in each ‘Gallery’ segment. This…

colour is important

Di Tarrant was born in Adelaide in 1938, the younger of two children. During her early working life she did some nursing, but after marrying and starting a family she undertook clerical duties in the automotive field. She has memories of one art teacher who ‘lit her fire’ when she was a young student. “The art teacher was my favourite, and I remember her after all these years with warm feelings,” Di says. “I guess she kindled the flames that would be fanned later in life – to create the passion I now have for all things artistic.” In 2000, Di Tarrant moved to the far south coast of New South Wales. Prior to this she had seen few opportunities to explore the many fields of art. Unsure of what she really wished…

STEP ONE Prime the canvas support with vigorous strokes of gesso, leaving textural lines. Cross-hatch brush marks. Allow this to dry thoroughly. STEP TWO With binder medium, glue randomly-placed roughly-cut pieces of rice paper or textured paper onto the lower third of the canvas. Textured paper should be torn (not cut), to give a better transition of edges when glued. Again, dry thoroughly. STEP THREE Grid the canvas roughly into thirds or quarters, mainly as a guide for applying paint in the colour transitions which are about to take place. Grid lines are used as a guide only and they need to be only lightly drawn or they will contaminate the clarity of the paint. STEPS FOUR AND FIVE Start applying random patchwork style areas of warm and cool ‘yellow blend’ paints, taking some into the next…

master hints and tips

• Seek out a mentor, and experiment without fear (using different mediums) on the path to recognising what you really want to do. • Allow yourself time to explore and destroy. Paint over old paintings to create new exciting works with their own ‘understories’. • Play, become a child again. Your time. Your place. Your art. • Learn from everybody and discard what you cannot use. • Use all the colours on your palette in all parts of the work to make the results more harmonious and connected. • Create folders of ideas, with photographs of work you would like to explore in the future; maybe an artist’s work that inspires you to try something different. Often when you are looking for inspiration it will come to you while considering images collected from the past. •…
