All the clouds of this morning disappeared so I decided to get out this afternoon for a quick sketch and to see what the harbour is like on Christmas Day…

It was bizarrely quiet.I have been to the beach on christmas afternoon a number of times and it has been crowded, so I was very surprisd at how deserted the harbour was. And to think the harbour’s biggest day of the year is tomorrow. Boxing Day is the start of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and for the first time in my life I am going harobur side to see it! So stay tuned…..

But in the meantime here is my xmas dinner. This was one occasion when I only got the outline done before I ate, then added the colour from memory after my plate was empty!
Happy Holiday Everyone!

    what is this?--Brocoli. Potato chunks and pitas? It looks really tasty.
