Treading the Boards

“Treading the Boards”
Coloured pencils and Sennelier oil pastels.
225 x 275 mm.
August 2017

In a theatrical setting; the port of Fremantle lit by morning sunshine, a seagull steps along a wooden plank with the studied deliberation of an actor treading the boards.

This drawing will be one of 21 Julie Podstolski drawings exhibited at Kidogo Arthouse, Bathers Beach, Fremantle, from 7th September 2017 (for two weeks) – with ceramics by Stewart Scambler.

    Beautiful work, Julie! Wish I could come to the show. x

  2. Oh, this is wonderful. Another of your ‘rushed’ ones? This is working so well. He is bathed in light, stepping towards us with great determination. These are going to be a wonderful set.

    • Yes, this is the last of the rushed ones. Now I’m done with the birds I can get back to where I left off. I am very happy with the bird set and I’m glad I did them but my heart yearns to work on another type of work (blurry urban). Sometimes circumstances dictate that one is strategic in subject matter rather than simply heart-driven.
