Hi Cathy and Raymond, George is watching with me thoroughly enjoying the gig and wishing he could join in with his drums! Xx🥁

Looks and sounds great!

I can just see a weird and wonky hot air balloon with the kids dangling out of it...of course the air balloon has a propeller gadget thing. Or is that just me lol... too many gins? Probably...

Glad you are back painting to music Don. Jacob and Matt are great entertainers . You painting is looking great. Can’t wait to visit your studio at Jacobs Well after all the COVID restrictions are lifted .

Looking magnificent..... l just love that gorgeous sky!💕

We have our granddaughter Maddison watching with us. Maddison said she loves the music and the painting she is keen to see what it will be

He must be tired, it’s looking so beautiful!❤️

And thank you to you for your time and beautiful arts - music and painting. I was told in grade 8 to not choose art bc I was hopeless at it- literally now I struggle to colour between the lines but music is my thing.

There is so much singing and enjoyment in our lounge room!!! Thank you both

Hello Don & Marg!! We miss your handsome face in Cairns!! From Richard and Janine (from Frame Design days)

He’s amazing with her! Actually obsessed. He’s overly loving at times, so we have to watch him haha

Great job guys thank you! This is a great concept and great fun!

Take care all of you I’ve loved this xx ❣️

Yes thank you!! What a wonderful night for three amazing artists!!

Thank you all, it’s fabulous!

Thank's for trying Emma, I think your Dad might need some Metallica to finish off with 😈

Yes Cathy definitely puts you in your happy place during these trying times 😘

Good evening guys! Looking forward to tonight and seeing what happens with that glorious canvas!

Don the boys are doing a great job- that painting looks amazing -

Thank you Don and Emma, it’s been amazing!❤️❤️❤️

Thank you Emma, it’s been great 👏

My 5 year old has been captivated by your work. A book would be truly amazing

Running late, sounds great!♥️

hehehe...didn't mean to -= really love that song! Hi Don!!1

Wow.. I just got a glimpse of where the painting is heading..love it..well don Don

Thank you Don, Emma and Jacob.... it's been such a wonderful night. We just appreciated it so much! You guys are so inspirational! 🙏💙😘

Love you Don - going to bed bc getting up early - our little Bonnie has been away in Navy now for 3 years- special day on our driveway instead of the parade.

Two great artists doing what they do soo well.. just beautiful... thank you for sharing.. we all need some positivity at this time .. thank you...

Was that a happy dance Don? You look you appreciate a job well done mate.

Thanks guys just had a romantic dinner with a craxy Artist and a piano man.Awsome work guys😁😁

A mermaid seems to be sitting on the bottom left rock . Her tail is in the water , just missing her top half’s

Wish I could play the piano , especially a grand one . It’s beautiful 💕

What a great time ! Love the music and seeing Don paint at breakneck speed 😂🥳🎤looks gorgeous not a clue where it’s going to go but love it

Oh, one of my all time favourite songs! I've even used this as a reference to paint! Beautiful Jacob!

Can we do this live after COVID at Jakes place? That piano, am in love with it! We can clap and sing and banter ...how awesome 😎

Amazing all three of you superstars the painting the music and the support manager 🙂 So happy to be on this right now.

That was so lovely, thankyou for sharing your music, beautiful words👏🏻☺️

Thank you Jacob and “the Don” for a wonderful iso Friday night ❤️

So sad 😞 good to dedicate a song to them and their families - will raise my glass . Thanks to them all xx

Sounds like it would be a good Disney song Jake I love it!

It’s a privilege to know Don and a pleasure to meet you Javoc

Does Jake take requests in the spirit of Anzac day ? The pogues- the band played waltzing Matilda

Takes me back to the NZ cruise when you when were the artist in residence. So much fun each night with you and Marg

Am singing along with a glass of wine ...hubby is cooking tea it smells so good!

Thank you both for a lovely night, and the painting looks amazing!

Hope you can pass that previous message on bc Don met her thru mike Pearson on our cruise in 2012...

Hey Donald & Jacob 👋 👋 Thanks for putting on a great show tonight 😊

The first thing I said when you showed this second picture is OMG that’s my holiday

You've done lots on this since Wednesday Don, it's looking beautiful!

Looks like different depths of the ocean from above. Add some fish... 🐠

hi Don Emma and Jake looking forward to the show!

Thanks for a great evening guys! Excellent work!

It's certainly much better now! Is it possible to bring the piano level down a bit & voice a little too, but not as much as the piano. It's distorting a bit. I am listening with studio monitors.

Piano is peaking out & voice mike is being overtaken by piano mics a bit. Can still hear vocals, but a fair way back Emma-Louise Waters

Sounds good but I’m on iPhone, but could hear everything Dad was saying, over the music

Great session this morning Don

Only a little in Jakes studio but still good

I’ll Benjamin round for the tap dancing 🤣

Jacob, only hear talk softly, improving now

HI don and Jacob i am looking forward to your joint efforts x c

Bev Young

We can hear your vocals

Jake has a hall reverb going on

There is reverb Brian

Both of you are coming thru cleanly now on Facebook Emma-Louise Waters No feedback

But pubs open at 10 usually!

Sounds good

Working class man

Jake i mean

I’m watching

Don you are clear

Thanks Don (and Emma) loved watching the video and I’m excited to get painting again.😊

Thank you Emma. I will buy after the event. I enjoyed the first one with DJW, but I must admit it was inspiration to get my ironing finished. I do not have any charcoal, but I loved watching the process with a great sense of achievement in getting to the bottom of the ironing. Thanks. 🌹🥰

I'd really love those cushions DJW Oam. To match my two prints on the wall.

I'm really enjoying the lessons Don

Details to come. Thank-you all for your continued support and patience during this online video baptism of fire. Perhaps next week Donald may even stand in frame, but no need to fret until he does *spoiler alert* he's been follicley challenged for some time.

I am working business hours. If I register can I watch the video's in a the evening and repeatedly

I am sitting here feeling totally frustrated. I joined and paid, but I do not know the procedure to use Zoom. It is asking for Meeting ID or join with personal link name, and I cannot get either. I hope you are recording this. thanka

Thanks for a wonderful experience. Love your take on life. I will be there next week !!!

I can’t make the webinar time :(. If I register will it be available as a recording?

Hi Don, will these be run regularly? Me and my daughter would love to do one next week ❤️

UPDATE: ISOLATION EDUCATION WITH DJW

Firstly thank-you for the response and support to our increased online presence. Donald the Dinosaur 🦖 has finally conceded there may actually be something in this internet caper! 🤪

After extensive reflection and consultation (or yelling-we are a ‘passionate’ household), we have arrived at an initial online lesson plan for Wednesday’s which will uphold Donald’s unique teaching ethos of PROCESS OVER CONTENT THROUGH COLLABORATIVE INPUT 🙌🏻

Now what on earth 🌍 does that mean 🤷🏻‍♀️?! I’m sure you’ve heard the old adage about teaching a man to fish 🎣 - Donald wants to teach each individual no matter their skill level the approach and technique to confidently pursue art as on ongoing practise opposed to copying a vase of flowers stroke for stroke and never lifting the brush again... And this is how he plans to do it!

*Edit* these will also be recorded and available for those who can not make the live class.

WEDNESDAY 1st APRIL 10am-12:30pm
1. Evolution a blank canvas - starting with black and white sketching. Art as a mindfulness practice. Turning creative writing into shapes and rotating the canvas. Adding white paint to contaminate charcoal and create a tonal range.

WEDNESDAY 8th APRIL 10am-12:30pm
2. PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES! -how far can you distort your reference material. Compositional layout using references. Using thumbnail sketching to plan your final composition. Rule of thirds, golden mean as a guideline. Traditional drawing to distorted impressionist drawing styles.

WEDNESDAY 15th APRIL 10am-12:30pm
3. THE EASY ONE- Preparation to Paint. Insider tricks to sealing the charcoal / black and white drawing ready to add colour! Glazing and Scumbling- impermanence of colour selections (AKA changing your mind).

We will move on from here to the emotion of colour / line, don’t want to get too far ahead so we can take feedback, make adjustments to improve as we go along.

Student critiques will form part of the lesson format as is a valuable teaching tool, if you wish to opt in by sending your artworks to education@djwaters.com.au, if you do not wish to participate that is ok too! Don will also monitor the email between lessons to offer troubleshooting and advice. Look forward to seeing you in the live class!

Do you have an other way to pay than PayPal?

You're a wise old owl Donald.

Looks great - just have to check out the registration and logistics of how to login.

Is this the same as last week, but now we pay for it? No drama, just checking. Tks.

So looking forward to these classes. ☺

Fantastic! Signed up!

Is there a fee for each lesson?

What do I need to have at home to do this ?

Olaf and Jockie Boy! Xx

I am wondering if there is an option to do these collaboratively live on line?

In the best interests of public safety, the decision has been made to postpone DJW’s upcoming exhibitions and withdraw him from public events until there is a clearer indication the direction this virus will take, the impact on our more compromised members of society and required resources.

As a vigorously active ambassador for The Arts, Donald does not make this decision lightly. Exhibiting, performing, teaching and mentoring has provided the livelihood of his family now for four decades. Donald is adopting the positive viewpoint that more time in the studio is more time to create and an opportunity to connect.

During this unprecedented time, we will endeavour to make best use of the many online capabilities we are fortunate enough to have at our disposal to share and showcase DJW’s gift to brighten the challenging days ahead. He will continue to open his studio to private and small groups including Create, Consume. for viewings, tutelage, take on commissioned artworks etc. and would love your support!

Pictured below, DJW earlier today envisaging where he would like to practice his social distancing. Hope he remembers to paint in some toilet paper!?

Two artworks completed exploring the theme ‘Calm & Subdued’. The content (figures in this instance) were decided upon and painted first; the background last.

When the separate artworks are displayed together, it looks as though an older gentleman has stumbled across a nudist beach walking his trusty hound, meanwhile old love is struggling with a jellyfish sting to the left cheek.

“... let me tell you something,
I have the universe inside,
I have an untold ocean
With a constant changing tide,
I'm home to endless mountains,
With tips that touch the sky,
Flocks of grand migrating birds,
And deserts harsh and dry,
I house the wildest rivers,
And a host of sweeping plains,
I feel in waves of sunshine,
Or in unrelenting rains,
Don't tell me that you know me,
That "this right here is what you are",
I am the universe in motion,
For I was born from the stars.”

Thanks for the advice for Ella Baird at the Bell Art Exhibition 2020 Qld .. I have most of her art on my page.. Trying to encourage her (Stepping stones) to get involved in the community with the gift she has, knowing this was her first attempt in the public art gallery of Bell (Western Downs) Queensland, where art is displayed and judged by yourself .. The winners are well deserved and agree with your comment above, where the high standard was displayed throughout the exhibition. Look forward to seeing your work, now that I've located you on Facebook, and the following / like tab is activated ..

Saw DJW’s face smiling at me from a promo poster in a shop at Beenleigh. He’s everywhere!

They couldn’t have asked for a better judge than Don. He’s a fantastic , knowledgeable and compassionate artist 💗

I love the artwork you are looking at Don.

Fantastic person and an amazingly caring man

Good job Don!

Made the mistake of hanging these on my bedroom wall to photograph in good light. A range of questions to now ponder, the most prominent being....

Will DJW notice if they are not returned?

Maybe I can borrow just one of them for a short period of time? Ok, so now which one?

The one on the floor would match our current DJW hanging in our lounge, almost wrong not too 🤷🏼‍♂️

Hard decision... can you just keep all three... but maybe the back dark blue one if you can choose only one.😂

He has so many - surely he won’t miss those wee ones....

Nice problem to have... happy to take your rejects!

Things happen in 3 😁😁

Keep all 3 😂

On the floor.

Or you can send one to me, lol

DJW is partnering with Castaway Cafe and Debortoli Wines to offer a range of boutique experiences under the heading ‘Create, Consume.

Yesterday saw the first group welcomed into his art studio to each create a small take home artwork until his tutelage. They had enough fun to book again next month!

Stay tuned for more details on this offering!

Our dearest friends have dropped their Little Blue Duck over for a bit of an artistic spruce up... he is overseeing DJW’s progress on the main easel while he waits. ... See MoreSee Less

🤪( So is the duck the real Guru then.... ?? Lol 😏)

He’s on an excursion at the human aquarium.

Wow! Quacker of a painting ❤️

The work will be all it’s quacked up to be.

Looks like he should become part of the painting!

Love it Don 🤘

Australia Day. Invasion Day. Survival Day... regardless of what resonates for you it is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate January 26th each year as our multicultural nation matures.

Respectfully acknowledging and teaching our whole history is a necessary step in healing Australia’s collective future. #alwayswasalwayswillbe #whiteaustraliahasablackpast #yesterdaytodayandtomorrow #survivalday #ausday2020 #unity #respect #growth ...

Outback Don is slashing $150 off these two ‘fair dinkum’ Aussie images for the Aussie Day Weekend and donating a further $50 for every print sold to FRRR.

A lot of thought went into creating this unique and imaginative discount code, so use it wisely “AUSSIE2020WKEND” 🤣
