With the completion of my Barron Falls drawing (I’m taking it to a framer today), I have commenced a still life featuring objects that I have collected from Trinity Beach. At 60 x 40 cm, it’s half the size of my first ‘tropical’ drawing, but it’s a size that is appropriate for such a subject.

The rocks are quite different in size and detail to what I was used to in Tasmania. I’m adding some seed pods to give it a ‘local’ feel.

I’m not rushing this drawing as Val and I are keen to continue exploring, but I will post an update when there is more to see.

Since I started this drawing I have collected a fairly large group of objects that I intend to arrange and photograph over the next week or so. Beaches are a wonderful source of subject material for artists and I’m looking forward to seeing what I can come up with.

On Wednesday we visited Babinda where Val enjoyed a wonderful time at Scrap Therapy. We both think that this is the best scrapbooking shop in Australia! You can check out what Lee-Anne and Danny have to offer by visiting:

And no, I’m not being paid to advertise this business. When something is this good I believe in telling everyone.

While we were in the Babinda area we visited The Boulders and Josephine Falls. I have some great photos for future drawings.

    Superb work. Can’t wait to see your waterfall drawing completed. Thank you for the lovely comment at my blog, and as always for visiting. 🙂

      Cheers, April. Unfortunately I forgot to photograph the drawing before it went to the framer. However, I will take one before I submit it to the ‘Artists of the Far North’ Exhibition on May 9.

    Thanks guys for the lovely compliment – the best in Australia is a hard title to live up to but we will try – Danny and I both thoroughly enjoyed meeting you both as well and I am sure we will see more of you whilst you are in North Qld.

      I’m sure you will cope with the pressure, Lee-Anne! I will do a drawing or two from our Babinda visit, but not for a while. Next week I’ll have a photo of Josephine Falls(Monday) and The Boulders (Wednesday) on my photoblog, after 5pm.
