Anne Smerdon  Australian artist - horses, birds, girls. My birds πŸ“²@facebeak

My watercolour paintings from yesterday's @johnlovettartist workshop. I wish I had John's ability to make such beautiful paintings from references that I would have normally considered no good to paint from!

Yesterday's "drawing with horses" workshop was a blast - horses, thunder storms, charcoal and beautiful people! Thanks everyone for coming! Here's my quick charcoal sketch for reference in future. Happy drawing! Thank you @shambamalaika @ridestrongtherapy @artablestudios

I arrived home yesterday with our new baby bird. This was Vonnegut's reaction when he first met her!!! πŸ˜πŸ’• It's possibly the cutest thing you will see for the rest of the year.

I've just announced a new workshop on 3 December! For those that I have already mentioned it to - yep, this is THE workshop! The one where I will be showing you how to draw horses with REAL LIFE HORSES as our models!

Learn my tips to drawing horses with charcoal whilst sitting amongst the picturesque setting of Currumbin Valley equestrian property, Shamba Malaika. Head to to book!

Congratulations to my dear friend @corinnelewis_art !!!! Her incredible oil painting of Vonnegut (@facebeak) and I has been selected as a finalist in the prestigious Portia Geach Memorial Art Award!!! What an honor it is to know and to be painted by such a kind and talented woman! The selected paintings will be on display at @shervingallery so if you are in Sydney, check them out.

Remembering the good times with this handsome steed today πŸ’•...thanks @corinnelewis_art for the photo

A wedding gift for the bride & groom - miniature portraits in oil. That's fancy, so fancy.
