The World through my Galaxy Note

It has been so windy & raining a lot in the Gold Coast this week! On Monday I walked to the beach to check out the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships but because of the weather they were all covered up & the only one I could see was the one in the photos below –  2 Giraffes on the back of a truck :)

Relaxing weekend for me, enjoy x

The Duck at the Botanic Gardens

You may have already noticed from this weeks posts that I was very fond of the little Duck that I met at the Botanic Gardens on Saturday, so I thought I would share a couple more pictures of it taken from my camera. I had a play on Photoshop & changed them to Black & White – which I love. Which one is your favourite?

Shoot it, Sketch it – A Duck at the Botanic Gardens

This week for Shoot it, Sketch it I took a photograph of a very friendly Duck! I actually didn’t want to leave as the Duck was following my partner & I around the park – it had so much personality.

I used a Black Copic Multi Liner & sketched this photograph, I haven’t done a quick sketch for a while! At Art School we were encouraged to do quick sketches all the time – I guess I’m usually too obsessed with intricate lines, detail & colour. It was nice to attack the drawing with loose strokes & a relaxed hand :)

The World through my Galaxy Note

Here are some pictures from the week that’s been. We had a beautiful sunset this week, I had my fav Vegetable Tempura Udon Noodle Soup at a local Sushi Train & we have also been back to the Botanic Gardens. This Swan & Duck were rather friendly & hung about for a while. Rain is forecast for the weekend so hopefully I will have some new art to share. Enjoy x
