A drawing for Creative Every Day, which I completed today. This is similar to our pre-breakfast snack which I will explain shortly…

Yesterday, I posted images of camping in Wye River. Here are a few more…

As the famous saying goes, the journey is the destination… We started our holiday long before we reached the campsite. We had breakfast at Newport (2nd breakfast actually. The first one was like the one drawn above…). The cafe was next to a train station. I sketched platform 2 in front of me, while waiting for our food. It was a yummy breakfast – mine was beans with egg and tapenade. My husband had mango French toast.

An hour and a half later, I managed a quick sketch (coloured later) when we had morning tea.

Our first visitor who came after we put up our tent. There were many rosellas at the campsite.

Mr. Kookaburra sat on this pole every evening. From this post, he could spot worms. Every now and again, Mr. kookaburra left this post to pick up a worm from the ground.

Magpie © Evelyn Howard 2010 

Magpies will visit restaurants for food. Those sharp beaks look scary, and I am not fond of them. But I must admit that the black and white feathers look quite nice.

This fella has 2 legs but I don’t know why he/she chose to hide the other.

I don’t recognise this birdie which I only saw once…

Sweet little bird… Small birds are difficult to photograph, coz they are so fidgety…

Great bird pictures! That first sketch is amazing. I find it so crazy that people can actually draw like that since it's so not in my range of dooable.

Beautiful sketches, beautiful photos! I love bird photos and wish I had a better zoom/other lens to try it out, but they kind of become little dots on my photos. :-)

Wonderful post. Your drawings are delightful,warm and friendly and uplifting. The bird photos are worthy of the Audubon Society. I really do enjoy your work.

Beautiful photos of the birds. I also love your sketching technique. The sketch today is awesome! I want to live vicariously through you as you travel. I want to be on the road, but right now I have to finish my school. Soon though. I would love to go to Australia too!

Love your drawing and all the lovely bird shots.

I have never seen birds in close-up like this.
I love magpies but this one looks so big!

So many lovely birds!! Strange to think you have the Summer now, and the Summer Holidays..! I'm wondering how it feels like to celebrate the Christmas Eve in the summer, or at the beach!? ;) Here it's 14 minus Celsius grades! Right now.. :)
