Day 19 of the 31 day challenge for January.

A rushed painting today. I had to attend a training day in Maryborough today and tried to fit in a painting on the two hour trip back home. Managed to find a spot on the Mary River where it bent around and was lit up in sunshine.

A tiny boat ramp in the bush. I watched as two local farm lads launched their dingy into the water. One telling the other about the time he saw a crocodile in this very spot.

Nervously I sat on the river embankment and did this quick sketch. Sadly the sketch didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked and the photo is overexposed.

My goal is to try out new ideas and different compositions. Experiment, play and have fun. By painting daily of course it will improve my skills as well.

I will sell most of these sketches on Ebay for no reserve auctions. Some will be used as ideas for larger works, and some may become episodes of Learn To Paint TV.
