Trip to Australia


I've not posted for a few days because I've been preoccupied with getting ready for our trip to Australia. We leave tomorrow!! I've never been before, so it's very, very exciting. We'll be spending a week in Sydney, then going to Port Douglas and then on to Bloomfield in the Daintree rainforest. Can't wait!! So, here are a few random sketches that I've done in breaks from packing. I might not be able to post again until mid-April. But, I'm taking pens, pencils and paints with me, so with any luck there'll be something to show you all when I get back.

Nice sketches!

You lucky, lucky man ... I have visited Sydney, Port Douglas and the Daintree rainforest (over two trips) and didn't manage a single sketch, but I am determined to go back there someday! Gorgeous, gorgeous part of the world!

I was just wondering 'what's Dave up to?' and here I discover you are in Australia! The last place I'd have thought of.

I do hope you get a chance for a few sketches and maybe some photos to make me even more homesick than I am. If you make any mention of beautiful Asian food, you will really break my heart.

Have fun.

I had to come back here to ask: What is the colour of this ink dave, I love it...I'm looking all over for a burgundy colour ink but can only find the real reds, which are too red?

Thanks for your lovely comments.

Ronell, the ink is Noodlers red-black. In the UK I get it from http://www.thewritingdesk.co.uk/noodlers/noodlers.php It is a great colour, which I learned about from Anita.
