So I had just finished another sketchbook and when I flicked back through I came across this little gem of an illustration of Ringo the Ringtail Possum and Z the Sleepy Koala with just the words ‘2 cute’ as there are two of them and they are too cute!
So I couldn’t resist tracing the illustration into Adobe Illustrator and then finishing off the colour including a bush themed background in Adobe Photoshop.
Today we visited the Botanic Gardens at Mt Cootha, Brisbane. So as we walk along I take quick sketches of the scenes to try and capture the essence of what I am seeing, usually in only a couple of minutes so not to hold up the walk. when I got home I added some pencil colour and I thought I would also keep to the two minute timeframe with adding the colour as well.
As I look forward to the next sketching day out with my buddy on Sunday, here are two of the sketches that I created on our last outing. One of a water dragon, and one of an Ibis, both at City Botanic Gardens.
This Sunday we are adventuring into Roma St Parkland… Can’t wait!
