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.

Wildlife Magpies

I am in awe of our Victorian magpie families and will post another quick sketch soon from my garden in the heatwave this past weekend.  So adorable watching one bird seeking out where I had left tubs of water for them.  He let me come up very close as he was sipping away in the heat of the day.
