My kids rep cricket day was a hot one in Melbourne 34 degrees C.

I always have my sketch gear with me at long cricket days. I figure I get to watch but when I’ve had enough I’ll just sketch. These blokes had no idea they featured in my sketchbook ha!

It was 34 degrees in Melbourne and the game was out in a suburb called Werribee. The field was big, flat with no trees of course. Along way from home. Our team got wiped out so not through to the finals.

Aaaaaahhhhh another hot summer of cricket.

She has two teenage boys, works part time as an Education Art Assistant at a Secondary Girls School and paints on her days off in her leafy Eltham Studio. Julie works in illustration in a nostalgic vintage style and loves to paint from the nature around her bushy local environment and wherever she can find any form of nature on her travels. She is captivated by how the light flickers and dances when working from still life or outdoors. Having studied traditional painting methods under Jenni Mitchell and Mervynn Hannan from Eltham South Fine Art Studios and Gallery has taught Julie many elements of drawing, composition, colour, painting, trying new materials, beautifying the simple things around us.
