FUN IN THE SUN WITH THE PROS!
It is really the time for great events on the Southern Gold Coast. The Roxy and Quicksilver Pro brings our town alive. It is abuzz with pro surfers and those who love to bask in the atmosphere of the surf and the sun.
It is only fitting that we are inspired to create with a surfing theme. This year we looked at the art of Harry Daily and his Sketch Holiday Series.
We worked on simple contour drawings of each other in strange surfing poses and then talked about composing our pictures.
We used simple black lines to fill our pages and then added colour with water colours. Some used wax resist techniques and others used salt on the water colour for a different result.
The art was wonderful and bright but the highlight may have been running into Mick Fanning and having him sign the artwork.
A great day had by all – Good Luck Mick (and Parko!)
