Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

Y2D278 and that sinking feeling

I had a bit of an explore of Mount Gambier and it’s surrounding area, places I haven’t been to before such as the Umpherston Sinkhole and the lighthouses at Cape Northumberland. I extracted my sketchbook at the sinkhole (a natural formation that is now a garden – very lush) as there were not many people there, but pretty soon I got that watched over the shoulder feeling and sure enough, there were a lot more visitors than when I arrived, despite the drizzly weather.


I didn’t bother with the sketchbook at the Cape, it was blowing a gale and I had a hard enough time keeping myself upright, nor did I use it when I went up the road to the Coonawarra wine region, far too busy exploring other things at the vineyards!


Day 315 and practice

Nearly there, only 50 days left in my challenge, and I think I haven’t done so badly. At least I have been drawing every day, if not posting.

Anyhow, today’s post is practice for the new Twitter Art Exhibition that is happening in March 2014, in Orlando. Just testing out some ideas really…


Day 246 and sunsets

We had a rather spectacular sunset tonight, so I spent a few moments trying to get the colours down on paper. But colour on a page is not that interesting so I overlaid it with a  sketch of the Newlyn light, from a photo taken on Saturday.
