Bound for OZ
In a few hours, I board a plane bound for the land of OZ...yep, I'll be in Australia for three weeks to teach workshops in Melbourne and Sydney! My heartfelt thanks to all who are participating, and to RooiPing Lim and Angela Williams for setting this up. I met them at the Singapore Urban Sketchers Symposium when the warm group of talented Aussie sketchers sort of adopted me as we wandered the streets. I love them!!!
Above is a tiny and quick sketch from 2005, painted on the beach, just as I was starting to do a very small amount of travel sketching (you can probably tell it's an early sketch!) We traveled to Australia to visit relatives in Adelaide, hometown of my dear mother-in-law and Melbourne, and we also went to the Great Barrier Reef with our kids. I will be so happy to get back to this wonderful country with such wonderful people!
So stay tuned here and on Facebook and Instagram for sketches and photos during the next three weeks! It's another sketching adventure!! Off to finish packing!
