Artist in residence at The Convent Daylesford

Ade Blakey as artist in residence at The Convent Galleries, Daylesford

Last February, I was artist in residence at the Convent where I'd been exhibiting 26 works since the start of January. I spent a full weekend on site doing painting demonstrations and chatting to the public. 


I even managed to complete a few new works, including two views of the gorgeous Convent building itself. Here's a photo of me completing one of them:

The Convent is one of regional Victoria's more interesting art galleries and as a local tourist destination, attracts a steady flow of visitors, and I had a lot of fun meeting everyone. You see more of the paintings exhibited in the video below.
