Yeah, OK I admit it, the watercolour moleskine is a perfect little portable sketchbook.

Julie,
I have ben following your daily walks and they are soooo beautiful. Today's is lovely. Your composition and colors are yummy. I've been doing something similar. But it took me awhile to figur eout what media I wanted to use. But I too like walking every day and this gives me a purpose. You are setting a great example.

Thank you Nick, and thank you so much for the link - I've just spent an enjoyable time looking at everything I can find about him. What lovely, joyful quirky work.

Lindsay, It's really difficult isn't it choosing the media. I'm self employed so the time I have can be very variable - sometimes just a couple of minutes and sometimes much longer, which is why the drawings are with different kinds of media. But I sometimes wish I just had one bag with everything I needed in it.

This one looks so English, all I get to see are paddocks and gum trees!

Thanks, Hashi. Penny I am lucky with where I live and get to see - but then no seals or whales around here!

Looks like it's almost harvest time already. The church reminds me of Swiss village churches for some reason. Such an idylic scene - one can hardly imagine there would be any domestic violence, lack of work/life balance, obesity etc here.
