Hello dear Readers,
This week's theme is - TREE. I adore trees and I often sketch them. One of my favourite trees is the Queensland Bottle Tree. It's botanical name is Brachychiton rupestris and this is one I sketched on location way back in 2010.
I decided to go with Queensland Bottle trees for this week's theme too. This is as far as I have managed but I have a lot more elements to add, including some Aussie wildlife....to be completed and posted at a later date so stay tuned... I sketched this with ballpoint pen and my trusty Platinum Carbon fountain pen, when it doesn't decide to leak into the lid, that is. I love sketching with fountain pens!

Last week, two of my sons and I took a trip up to Tamborine Mountain, one of our favourite destinations. The weather was a bit iffy but we didn't let it stop us.
As I've said before, I adore trees and love to sketch and photograph them. Check out this tall boy.
What could be better than a rain-forest trail walk with trees galore?!
We walked to Curtis Falls
Rocky area beside the falls

After a lovely day on the mountain, we headed home. I'm so glad we didn't let the forecast of rain stop us as there was only one light rain shower the whole time we were there.
I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful week!
