Artist’s Hints & Tips
National Gallery of Victoria • Alex Prager
Eerie, Haunting and Fascinating
Water of Life • Montgomerie's style weaves effortlessly between social realism and a contemporary take on the techniques of the Old Masters. Painterly yet smooth, inviting yet intimately personal reflections ... her works are a testament to the light, depth, moods, possibilities and energies of the cleansing 'Water of Life' in which she finds herself immersed!

Anything Goes! • This quirky exhibition is a cool collection of just about everything!
The Invitation of Beauty • This artist’s paintings are a combination of pure classicism and sensuous illusionism. Modelled with such skill and solidity of form, her figures emanate a tangible physicality which verges on the surreal, levitating by some invisible force.
Artist’s Hints and Tips
Tools and Equipment Scratchboarding • This issue I will be introducing two products related to scratchboard art. Both are the substrates that we scratchboard artists work on. It makes sense to start at the beginning with the surface we use and to show you the possibilities.
Using motion blur to creative effect • Blur is avoided in many aspects of photography as people are often chasing a sharp image; used effectively though the results can be very impressive. Artists and photographers have been using blur in their works for a long time. There are multiple ways to add blur to a photograph and generally it is by use of a slower shutter speed.
15-20 Minutes Each Day • Virtually born with a passion for animals and birds, this fabulous artist has continually experimented and studied, creating works of art for all to enjoy.
The Kookaburra • The artist spent a number of days in Halls Gap recently, feeding a family of kookaburras their breakfast, and taking many wonderful photographs. This demonstration is from a photograph taken of one of the kookaburras sitting on a branch looking down at its siblings on the ground that were eating the bits of liver fed to them.
