Perth Zoo

A visit to Perth Zoo yesterday, I spent 5 & 1/5 hours sketching yesterday. So much to draw….feathers, fur and scales….all sorts of shapes and sizes, some of the creatures are “collages”….those that moved around….either I had to wait until it returned to the same spot of pick another similar relative! The lioness was one that got away….I’d just started drawing her when a noisy bunch of school kids arrived so she got up and walked off into the long grass and I didn’t see her again!

Crawley Edge Boathouse

The iconic Crawley Edge Boatshed along Mounts Bay Road (just up from UWA) sketched about noon today. Constructed in the 1930’s I think this must be the most photographed building in Perth…There’s always a stream of people walking along the boardwalk to have their picture taken or to take a selfie, loads of wedding photos here on the weekends. But I don’t think that I’ve ever seen a boat inside the boathouse!
