I decided it was time to stock up on some more Creative Inspiration this week and went for an Artist Date. I came across this idea of an Artist Date in one of Julia Cameron’s books called ‘The Artists Way’. This book is a fantastic resource for creative people and her idea of Artists Dates is something I wholly embrace and highly recommend. I will talk about the concept more in another post but if you want to know more – go here now.
I choose to do this on a monthly basis – spending a whole day and often travelling to Sydney. I find a lot more inspiration in the City, there are so many different things to go and explore. Rather than spending a couple of hours a week where I live, I find this works better for me. That’s not to say of course that I won’t sometimes pop into a local gallery or something that catches my interest.
I live an hour and a half on the train,
from Sydney – a really pretty train ride actually. For part of the trip the train wends its way beside and over inland waterways,and through tunnels and bushland.
Last week I went to the Powerhouse Museum – a fascinating place full of great foto opportunities. I gathered lots of rich detail for photoshop texture brushes and
painting and digital reference material.
Well worth the visit if you live close enough to go.
