Art Through Inspiration

Rock Pool Treasures 

Playing in the rock pools is one of my favorite things to do in the world.  Wintertime in Australia is great for rock pool treasures. The colors and textures are just calling out for me to sketch them.

I find real peace and serenity when I amble slowly over the rocks, picking through the shells, marveling at the colors.

Sometimes I overturn a rock to reveal a busy little crab, or I watch the glittering colors of a starfish sitting quietly in the shallows.

I love to explore color and texture, and used the rock pools as inspiration for my Australian Sketches.
