Something I love to do when I'm out walking. The term (fossicking) is still common  in Cornwall and Australia and was most likely originally a word used when searching for gold and minerals in the early days. Anyway, I love to find different treasures whether they are old bones, shells , feathers or seedpods, keeping them in my studio to sketch when I need inspiration.

Sunset and Snake

Two great photos taken by my son James, who works in northern Queensland. The photo of the sunset was taken on Groote Eylandt which is a large island in the Gulf of carpentaria owned by the Anindilyakwa people. Not sure what type of snake was in the second photo, but he has a great eye!

IF: Cultivate

We love to cultivate our own vegs but sometimes those pests are a nuisance. This was a quick watercolor sketch  finished in photoshop.
