Stories from my Sketchbook . . .
Our summer this year has been a real scorcher, even here around the mid-north coast where we are used to a much more temperate climate. But thankfully (at least I am thankful for it) the summer heat is finally starting to wane. The days are still sunny and warm but they are getting a tiny bit shorter and there is something in the air that smells just a little bit like autumn—and autumn is my favourite time of year . . .
But before the summer finally leaves us I thought I would do one final quick ‘summer’ sketch . . . and there is nothing more summery than a sunflower. I like sunflowers. They are big, bold, happy ‘in-your-face’ flowers.
And, it turns out, they’re even kind of fun to draw . . .
