Ink & Water

I've been drawing lately. Something I have neglected to do for quite a while now. I've drawn while at a cafe in Kallista, watching in the large space of the open curving window frames, the cockatoos and rosellas battle for their seeds. I drew while at my Mum and Dad's house, with my bare feet slapping the cool wooden floorboards in rhythm to the moaning sounds of old jazz singers flowing through the open rooms. I drew also at the side of M&D's swimming pool, swinging my legs in the warm water, and conjuring up images of the freezing continents, an immense contrast to the weather conditions here in Melbourne these past couple of days.

I've been inspired by the styles of the likes of Hannah Waldron and Camilla Engman, and their simple but elegant line drawings.

I'd forgotten the pure joy of drawing. I'd forgotten the daydreams, and made up worlds one falls into while scrawling and scribing. Lest I forget further.
