After 3 very productive sketching days, I then had a few quieter ones.
On the Friday we (Lynne, John and I) went for a walk through the Botanic Gardens and then along the Swan River. The only sketch I did (during this adventure) was of this tree in the gardens at the start of the day.
The other things we did/saw which I didn’t sketch were:
On Saturday I picked up a car and we drove to the Swan Valley for the day. Once again I didn’t do a lot of sketching but I am pleased with this combo page containing: a sketch while we were waiting to pick up the car, a line drawing of the view from lunch and a cup of tea.
I didn’t take many photos either… but here are a few.
One of the many wineries in the Swan Valley. We drove around enjoying the scenery (though a little flat for my liking) and did a few tastings – wine, cheese, fudge and chocolate. A nice relaxing Saturday.
On Sunday I visited two ‘sister’ churches to my own and didn’t touch my sketchbook. Monday I left to come home and you can see what I did at the airport here.
I had a fantastic time in Perth. It was great to spend some quality time with Lynne and John, and it was lovely to meet some local sketchers. It was my first trip to WA and I hope to be able to return soon!
