I went to the local art gallery in Hamilton today. It’s quite compact but had several small exhibitions that were very interesting and diverse, including WWI items, a local artist and pre-Federation colonial art. The permanent collection on display currently includes local portraits, Japanese pottery and Italian glass, plus there were lots of little vistas to draw throughout the gallery.
We’re on the move, up to Hamilton for a few days, so I drove the little car through the very pretty Victorian countryside. That means I can’t take any photos so have to rely on my somewhat dubious memory for what I saw. But we did see cattle…and trees, though maybe not precisely with giant black outlines.
Today we walked from the surf club along the tracks to Barwon Heads to have a coffee in the kiosk. It’s a lovely and easy walk, and we did detour along the beach for a little while. Once at the kiosk, I sat at the top by the jetty and sketched the boats and view of Ocean Grove stretching down the coast. Then on the way back I attempted to draw some of the surfers that were out catching waves on the incoming tide. It was a lovely afternoon.
