081224 Start of Holiday

Back to using watercolour moleskine – ah! they are nice.

First page, done last night, is dedicated to a dear friend in Scotland who passed away last week. I did this at approximately the same time as the funeral was being held in the highlands.

The flower is Sturt’s Desert Rose the state flower of Northern Territory.

Today, I went to Manly Beach briefly this morning – not there long but enough to do a quick sketch and get my feet in the sand and the ocean. (a good start to my summer holiday!)
Here is the beach sketch and also the full spread (couldn’t resist a traffic sketch could I?)

(BTW I just fiddled with the html code for this blog to get the size of the images bigger – I really wasn’t sure what I was doing but it looks like it has worked!)
