I did this super quick sketch (5 or 10 minutes) of my youngest daughter the other day while we were at a café waiting for our hot drinks to arrive. Her very glamorous tortoiseshell sunglasses had me in their thrall and I felt compelled to sketch them. You can see where I had to revise the jawline due to my initial haste and the likeness could be better - but it was fun to do!
Life has been frenetic these past couple of weeks so sketching and painting have taken a backseat. I did however write a travel article which was published in the travel lift-out of The West Australian this weekend - very exciting! I have also been tizzying up the garden now that the weather is so pleasant for sitting outside (although it poured with rain this weekend). I have enjoyed taking photos of flowers over the last month or two and thought they would be nice to share. So gird your loins people as there are quite a lot of them!
The following were taken in my garden in October
These lovely roses below are in the garden where I visit my Dad.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
