Yesterday on a horrible wet day we went to draw at the Australian Museum. My plan was to complete a GRID page layout as a sample for my sketchbook/journal class. I started with each page divided in pencil into six squares. Then I made space for my headings…and started.
I drew the longnosed bandicoot first. then the ringtail possum. Then I found the wonderful yellow tailed black cockatoo. The musk duck was next – he had such wonderful feet. Then I found a little space in the corner for the white-browed scrubwren (I didn’t see any white!)
It turned out quite different to what I had expected, but I liked the way the extremities of some of the animals poke out of the boundaries of their space.
