Lincoln National Park last night Fisherman’s Bay…quiet relatively sheltered bay, watched lightning and heard the thunder to the North but apart from a few spots of rain it didn’t bother us. Kids went rock- hopping & had skimming stone competition. Spagbol with samphire from the beach for dinner.
Staying at Catninga Farm-stay in the foothills of the Flinders ranges tonight….glorious sunset, lots of flies (but they go to bed at sundown) stars amazing.
The half buried remains of the old Eyre Telegraph station covered by the shifting sand dunes….
The steep cliffs along the Great Australian Bight…highway 1 along the Nullabor. Hot (39’C), windy & flies but a quick sketch to capture the dramatic shore
A profile sketch in the local cafe, inked on site, colour added later, mostly wet-in-wet watercolour technique.
Sketching in my usual Coffee Shop again…TWSBI Fude nib fountain pen and De Atramentis Document black ink with watercolour wash added over the top at home….
I cycled about 43 Km last Sunday. Set off from home to the Indian Ocean at Cottesloe, continued along the sea front into Fremantle, stopped to sketch one of the historic cranes next to the Maritime Museum. Then continued along the paths around the South side of the Swan River stopping again to sketch the city view from Attadale Reserve before continuing on over the Canning River bridge and following the cycle paths back home.
