Old bottles and bushfire lighting

October 17, 2013 | 2 Comments

Was given these old bottles by my dad months ago… “you might like to draw these”… they belonged to my sister. Anyway tonight I just needed a little chilling and they caught my eye – no pressure sketching. A little random composition on the page- had too many vertical elements at one stage.

Terrible bush fires in the state today and at 3pm the smoke blew down onto Sydney- causing weird yellow eerie light. Then at about 6pm I looked out and it was as if a fluro light was on in the backyard. The sun had sunk below the smoke clouds and for some reason its light appeared white. These photos don’t capture it well – we have the yellow/orange light during bushfires from time to time… but never seen this before.
