About 30 artists participated with musicians and mime artists, and whilst the day was about painting on location it was nice chatting to the many people passing by. Mosman Daily newspaper reported that there was 10,000 people who walked the boardwalk on the day. It kept us fairly busy chatting and answering questions about painting, etc. The interest people had in the paintings was very heartening, also many people talked about wanting to learn how to paint. In short it was a great fun day and very well organised by the North Sydney council.
I did not get my demo painting finished on the day. Too much chatting , but here is the finished painting below.
