Sculptures by the Sea 2019

Each year in Bondi Australia, there is an exhibition of sculptures, which because of their proximity to the ocean, is called Sculptures By the Sea. Here is a selection of photos that I took of some of the bizarre sculptures presented.

In the wild

These sketches are of wild beasts.

Even though some a darn cute.

Man and Beast part 2

These are sketches of humans and their animal companions….not horses as these were covered by a previous post.

Enjoy.

Man and Beast.  Horse and riders

Sometime over the last 18 months I got interested in horses and the people who ride or control them. So I sketched. I don’t claim them to be of any worth, I just like sharing what I have done. Enjoy.

Bird of a feather part 1

Over the last 18 months, while I have been offline, I have not been idle. I have been writing poetry and sketching. The birds that I have included here were mainly done with watercolour pencils or lead pencils. I did not have access to anything else.

I will split the bird pictures into 2 posts with 10 pictures in each. I hope I don’t overwhelm you. Other categories for sketches you will see come up include Man and Beast, Wild Animals, Flowers, Portraits, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

I hope you enjoy.

Pencil sketches.

After not picking up a pencil in 12 months I thought I would go to the art gallery, armed only with a 2b pencil and my sketchbook to see what i could do with tones etc. Note that i did not take a sharpener or eraser with me. These two pictures are the result.
