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.
