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.
