A work table, lamp and museum specimens were set up within the Colonial Gallery of the QVMAG in Tasmania. A chair was placed on the opposite side of the table for visitors to join me in drawing but instead I found that the chair was never empty as people simply wanted to talk about their favourite objects or to simply observe the act of drawing.

This was a month long open studio where work was produced within the gallery space. This image details the use of charcoal to draw a a squirrel that I photographed in Mexico City. All visitors to the open studio were encouraged to make any kind of marks that they wished and to experiment with drawing materials on a number of group projects.
