I do love my early Friday’s when I only work a half day. I’d mostly dash home, whip up a quick lunch for my home schoolers; but more often stop at my favourite Pattisiere and grab some homemade pies and a cake each for the boys and I. It’s time for school to go back next Tuesday but I will miss being with them on my half Friday’s.
I should do the housework then but will be happy to sit and draw at my little table that looks out to my little deck.
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.
I’m blocking in this painting of a little girl on her camel in Western Australia in a place called Broome. I am hoping to capture the rich colours and vastness of this incredible landscape. This is a bigger piece and I will share the finished work with you soon. If you haven’t travelled to the West put it on your list.
