Last week I gave a second drawing workshop at Point Halloran Conservation Area, as part of the community engagement activities associated with my exhibition at Redland Art Gallery. As we headed out from the carpark to walk the loop track, a koala was pointed out to us in a tree near the edge. I don't have a lot of experience with koala spotting, but this one looked a good size. This is only the second koala I have seen in Redlands during many outings. Unfortunately koala numbers have been declining over the past decade.
The weather was ideal for an outdoor workshop, after the 'treasure-hunt' walk we set up in a sheltered clearing to have fun with rubbings, print transfer, texture and surface treatments. It was an enjoyable afternoon, thanks to all the participants who got stuck into the spirit of experimenting.
