Part of my week away was to stay with friends in the Atherton Tablelands in North Queensland.
Being very busy I didn’t get a great deal of sketching done so the following are a hero selection of those finished and almost finished.
Here’s some more sketches from the week and details of each
First of all I should explain that all these were done in a large watercolour Moleskin and some were stretched over two pages in panoramic format.
This one was done in Albion St Surry Hills 2010 before I left. I had half an hour to kill so I used my new Pilot 1.5 parallel pen with black indian ink.
This was one of my water sources whilst away. Beautiful water to drink.
One day was torrential rain so I drew this off a picture.
I had intended to do all the sketches on this trip in pen and sepia watercolour wash. This is the only one where I stuck to the plan. These two were then joined / stitched in photoshop after scanning. It was intentional that the vertical framing landed right on the spine of the book … that’s where it was started. On inspection by a few friends I was urged to finish at this stage so I did. Here’s the final result again
