Australia Day and Skandia Yachts
There's plenty of action at the Geelong Watefront this week with a huge yachties festival called Skandia. There have been boat races in Geelong since 1840s. We went down there yesterday, Peceli to draw boats and I wanted to draw the horses at the carousel, but they kept going round and round and I couldn't catch 'em! However there was a static display of carousel horses there also as today there is a book launch. An author has written a children's book about a lost horse. We got a $50 parking fine - didn't know the beachfront had become a metred zone! We might go back today but take more care re the parking!
I found a book of recycled brown paper so used pages to add pencil, pastel and pen. I had another go at the ferris wheel, this time remembering to put in the huge supports. The other pic is of a yacht which took off as I was sketching it. Smorgies restaurant is in the background. I have trouble with pastel - can't get details so have to tinker with a black pen! I changed the colour of the horse by using Photoedit negative.
