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.
South Australia’s Point Labatt – Australian Sealion colony….great viewing platform perched on the cliff edge…all the action below, BYO binoculars or use the fixed free ones there
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
There’s a really cute 60’s/70’s style caravan sitting on the carpark next to Claremont train station…it’s been there for at least 12 months. I’ve been past it many times on the Fremantle-Perth train but never stopped to sketch it, the van body has lovely curving lines. On Monday we had an impromptu sketch-meet at the The Goods Shed Claremont….the perfect opportunity.
A profile sketch in the local cafe, inked on site, colour added later, mostly wet-in-wet watercolour technique.
