Grey day Where have you been?

I joined the Sydney Sketch Club last week and had a very ‘enlightening ‘ experience with new people and places and mediums etc. I love sketching and stuff like that so I got right into it. We went to the Australian National Maritime Museum and stayed inside as it was pouring with rain.

Here’s one of my sketches:

Black pen on paper.

I was inspired by being amongst a great bunch of likeminded people and it was a productive day. Now I have my own set of mini watercolours that I can add colour to my sketches with. Stay tuned.

O yes I still take plenty of pics. Yesterday I flew in Sydney and we manufactured great weather out of a better than average day.

Here’s a Mother with Babies in Rose Bay:

Reading this fab book at the moment. Fascinating if you are into art… Especially art history. Thanks Liz for the tip

Back at the Myocum School of Sculpture I took some pics for the wrap up of their first term. I love this piece that Helen (student) is putting together and will review it again next term:

I made another dash up to Byron Bay to cover the ArtsCape Biennial and get more progress images for Samantha Welch’s Myocum School of Sculpture.
Artscape finishes on the 11th July 2010 and there are some great pieces to see along the walk to Clarks Beach.

Myocum School of Sculpture by Tim Mooney

I’ve just completed a web site for Samantha Welch at her Myocum School of Sculpture. Sam is a very gifted artist and has fulfilled one of her dreams to have her own sculpture school.
She has engaged the services of Damien Lucas as the head teacher of the school and first classes are well under way.
The web site is at and was put together after long consultations with Samantha and Damien.
Here’s a grab of the home page:

New web page for ordering photographic enlargements

New web page for ordering photographic enlargements

I’ve been inspired to add a page to my website where you can buy print enlargements of selected aerial photography.
Every week I supply the lead image to Virtual Realty News (VRN) written by Robert Simeon of Richardson and Wrench Mosman. These images are now available in print format and its simple to order them from this page

Cambodia: logos online and bikes – by Tim Mooney

Friday, February 5th, 2010

A very old friend Pauline Johns is doing great work in Cambodia. Pauline is a regular in a certain area of Cambodia where poverty is the norm. Currently Pauline has been working on a few projects: 1. To give bicycles to deserved remote children, and 2. To help establish a school for these needy children.

Two too cute !

Two too cute !

I’ve been lending a hand via email designing a logo for the new school and another logo for an accompanying activity. The great www has no boundaries. Pauline is on her iPhone over there and has the full thing under control. I play with Illustrator and Photoshop and backwards and forwards we go until the local powers approve what is presented. Its fun.
Its a long way from Sydney aerial photography but when you see the photos of these underpriviledged people and their very soft natures why wouldn’t one help. Take a look for yourself:

That Control Factor by Tim Mooney

Friday, September 18th, 2009

I like to be in control of a car when I’m in it. I get a bit crook if I’m not at the wheel.

Yesterday I was out with clients shooting for their portfolio … for 3 hours. In an out of the car and fairly uninspiring weather to boot. Something about being in control that drives the creative juice pump. I found yesterday that I really had to work hard to get the shot. I really had to zone out and detach. All good though. I was left to the job and even though the light was dead I got the shots. Now I can see how valuable 15 years Photoshop experience is.
