Day 17 - AEDM & Nablopomo - Mallard duck

We had quite a nasty storm pass through Brissie mid-morning 
leaving 6000 homes and businesses without power. 
It seems that the Brisbane city area copped it the worst. 

I did my sketch early just in case
another storm was on the way. 
We're apparently due more storms tomorrow.

A mallard duck

Pencil-free sketch in A6 Moleskine pocket sketchbook 
using ZIG Millennium, Micron and PITT pens.

Thanks, Gary.

I have a pot of yummy Vindaloo curry simmering on the stove for dinner.
We love hot and spicy in this house.

Still no baby news. :(

Have a great weekend!
