Art Nation: Julian Meagher

To enhance our recent unit on Identity and our Visual Arts component of creating a self portrait I thought I would share this clip I watched today on ABC's Art Nation.

I particularly like this clip as it not only discusses why Julian chose a career in art over medicine, but has a number of excellent shots showing how he mixes and applies paint to the canvas to create tone and depth in still life objects (vases).

This clip also shows what it is like to have your own artist's studio (a little dream so many of us have!)
