2018 was truly an incredible year to revisit Japan for more amazing magic exploring this very different country and unique culture. This time, to explore the northern-most Island of Hokkiado on a two-week watercolour and drawing masterclass with world acclaimed Australian artist and tutor Ev Hales and tour organisers Paul and Pam Adams. The masterclass coincided with the height of the Sakura period a particularly beautiful time of the year where cherry blossoms are seen in a backdrop with snow-capped mountains. Exploring a wide range of different venues, from busy spaces in the bigger cities to remote areas in the mountains, seeing artisans, spectacular landscape, historic villages, intimate laneways, sea views, waterfalls, temples and beautiful Japanese gardens. The overriding success and shear joy of the trip, couldn’t have been more complete and delightful, if it weren’t for the amazing Japanese people.
This masterclass was particularly focused on encouraging individual exploration, seeing Ev’s role as a facilitator but helping artists achieve their expectations rather than dictating what to paint. The group explored different subject matter, techniques and methods with self-assessments and critique sessions every day. The highlight of the tour was this overwhelming feeling of being totally absorbed by everything and feeling so privileged to share this unique destination with the group. Above all, discovering what makes Japan such an incredible place can be only attributed to sharing their unique cultural thread with the beautiful people of Japan.

Inspiration is our testosterone for the mind. Turning inspired thoughts into our sole belief and purpose in life. Today, the word has evolved to feel innate and natural, in that, inspiration is found everywhere in life. Imagination of other people’s great achievements is very inspiring or simple solo tasks like listening to music or walking can trigger our inspiration. Often, our best work comes when we don’t care about the outcome and true creativity emerges as a willingness to play with the raw materials of life. For many people, the love of nature and the organic shape of flowers and trees are their inspiration. The creative process itself, brings people to a place of being totally present, and that process itself is inspiring. Although the source of inspiration is often fueled by materiality (owning a Ferrari) the love of nature remains the deepest wellspring of inspiration simply by its life-form.
