Having a workshop at Daku resort has been not only eventful in our painting sessions but we have been entertained, dined and taught the Fiji culture. Definitely learning to relax! I have found this wonderful time of day between 4:30pm and 7:30pm. The light has dimmed so we are unable to paint so work stops. But dinner is not served until later so there is 3 hours just chilling out. I must find the reason we don't do this at home!
Wow, from the cold snow of New Zealand to the tropical paradise of Fiji. Talk about climate change!!
Flying over the islands of Fiji I am in awe of its beauty. The mountains, the coral, the crystal seas. Can't wait to paint them all. The resort we are staying in has a postcard view. Watching the people move so slowly and effortlessly in "Fiji Time" you can not do anything but relax. Looking forward to explore this fantastic place and meet its people.
What a fantastic spot. The moody sky and deep green ocean was just too tempting not to paint. We were surrounded by tourists and Nicole helped guard my pastels for me as children ran up to have a look while she competed a sketch. A few albatross made their appearance to much camera clicking madness, Unfortunately they eluded the lens. Some days may not be sunny and bright but it is still good to paint. The subtle colours in the rock cliff were amazing and would not be captured well by the camera. I do love that perspective high over water. Lots of fun.
