A warm day even though it’s the middle of winter and almost the shortest day. I stole a few hours to draw, heading north to Bindoon with a packed lunch and thermos, to find a shady spot for some much needed solitude under some gum trees – similar to those that dominate both drawings. For a change, both were finished on site, rather than just getting the drawing and adding colour or tone later. As usual I get comfortable first then look around for a subject… in both drawings I began drawing and later had a vehicle get in the way. I accepted the additions and included them. Both from the same spot looking in different directions.
