Daily Sketches In Australian Autumn

Hi, Friends, in this post, I'd share my daily sketches in autumn. Today, our day light saving is over. (* Later, this Wednesday or Thursday, sketches on jazz players in the Garden come up.)Unlike the northern hemisphere, we do not have a "sentimental" fall in Australia. But winds get cold. Big waves mercilessly crashes into white and a sky gets grey--is autumn. I sketched this a few days ago after swimming.By the way, I still search for specific leaves that represent an Australian autumn. If anyone knows it, please let me know."Chanson d'automne" (Autumn Song) Paul Verlaine is my favorite poem. What sort of image do you have for an autumn? My image, Autumn weaves life and death into her colorful cloth. Probably, life and death is the most impressive drama in autumn that captures our heart and thoughts, even though it's always happening on at anywhere and anytime. Life and death are like a coin's heads and tails. Two in one. Unable to separate them. End is beginning. Vice verse. If so, always hope stays with us in any context.

While adults feel sentimentalism, children enjoy playing around outside like other seasons(who cares sentiment?!). Their energy is like a go-around-clock for "36 hours per day." Any child loves watching my drawing and painting. Soon we get friends.

Once, my friend's son came to me and clang to me till I had to leave. The friend confessed me with a surprise, "My son is so shy...a slightly autism-like child. Amazing... he likes you at once."

Another friend's daughters wanted to keep me playing with them and would
never leave us talk together. At last, the friend said, "This is mom's friend!! Please let us have a chat!" I had a big laugh. Those children have grown up to teenagers. Their memories are in fallen brown leaves.

A bit strange, when I was little, time stayed with me. Today, time flies away quickly, unless I grab it.
Well, it means I'm getting older?--I smile in falling leaves.
Also, autumn is a good season for art, sports, ride, and any outside activity. The other day, I saw a sexy bike with attractive purple. The owner said, "Women love this purple." Huge money was spent in the bike, more than a usual car price. Men's passion for bikes is beyond girls' understanding. (Of course, they nag?! at our enthusiasm for shopping.)
Friends, enjoy EVERYTHING in autumn...and live fully



  1. さだみさんのうつくしい絵を楽しんでいます。

  2. Beautiful paintings Sadami. I can't pick my favorite. Maybe the green wave. pretty! So fresh :)
    Thank you,

  3. a beautiful post...I do feel the clock ticking...much more than I did as a young person. Your sketches are very beautiful and touching. You are so skilled!

  4. Estoy de acuerdo contigo Sadami: el otoño quizás sea la estación más bonita para pintar. Sus colores cálidos, los rojos, los ocres, le dan una belleza incomparable. La misma que tienen siempre tus trabajos. La moto parece de verdad.
    Un abrazo y haznos disfrutar con tu interpretación del otoño.

  5. Dear エベリン、
    Kind regards, Sadami

  6. Dear Irina,
    Thanks millions! Your work, too, always refreshes me. While the sketch club gives me opportunities to sketch lots, my own daily sketches have been piled up on a desk. So, I upload them.
    Cheers, Sadami

  7. Dear Celeste,
    Thank you so much. You, too, make very beautiful posts one after another. I'd devote this say for you, "Only once, Youth comes to our life."
    Let us live fully.
    Cheers, Sadami

  8. Lovely post, Sadami. My Haiku poem "Autumn Years" fits right in with your blog today. Have you read it? My birthday is in October so I am an Autumn baby. I love all 4 seasons, actually here in Maine we say we have 5 seasons - Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and MUD. After hard winters we have lots of mud when the snow melts.
    This year snow seems to be evaporating for a change, the air is dry and sucking it all up. Dropping it as rain somewhere in Europe I suspect. Sorry about that! Enjoy your day!

  9. Dear Kubi,
    Thank you! I love autumn, but we still can swim at a beach. The bike was a challenging, as this girl is hopeless for a mechanic ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ. Let's have fun in paiting autumn, BUT you will enjoy spring!!
    Cheers, Sadami

    Estimado Kubi,
    ¡Gracias! Me encanta el otoño, pero todavía puede nadar en una playa. La moto era un reto, ya que esta chica está desesperada por un mecánico ʚ (◡) ɞ. Vamos a divertirnos en paiting otoño, pero podrá disfrutar de la primavera!
    Saludos, Sadami

    >>>Kubi said...
    I agree with you Sadami: Fall season is perhaps the most beautiful to paint. Its warm colors, reds, ochres, give it an incomparable beauty. The same as they always have your work. The bike looks real.
    A hug and let us enjoy your interpretation of the fall.

  10. Dear Carol,
    Thank U, but I haven't read your poem yet and just came home from 1km swimming at a beach.
    5 seasons!! How come,MUD from melted snow! I want to have some snow in Sydney, not much like your place. (I hate 'cold.') Oh, what a coincidence, my birthday is in October, too.
    Anyway, have a nice day!
    Kind regards, Sadami

  11. Hi, Sadami,
    here also came de fall.
    Yours drawings are lovely, very very much.
    Desculpe-me: meu inglês é horroroso.
    Um grande abraço.

  12. Greetings Sadami! And welcome to Autumn my favorite season when I dress in a worn but colorful cloak in celebration of a well deserved vacation. My trees and flowers have prepared my store house so I might rest knowing in a few short months the activity of birth and renewal will start again. Without the shedding of the old in Autumn and the quiescence of Winter, Spring would be meaningless.

    With love,

    Mom Nature

    Who deerly -oops!- dearly loves your aqua rendition of waves and water).

  13. Dear Ayde,
    I like your art works that make us think further, beyond and behind reality. Please keep up!
    Cheers, Sadami

    Caro Ayde,
    Eu gosto de seus trabalhos de arte que nos fazem pensar mais, além e por trás da realidade. Por favor, mantenha-se!
    Felicidades, Sadami

  14. Oh, deer, dear Nanina,
    (Don't be tough on yourself!! Your deer works are nice!)
    Yes, Mother Nature, your say is so true and right.
    Waves are my favorite and challenging subject. Happy to know you're fond of it, too.
    Cheers, Sadami

  15. Puff! Me dejas sin palabras! Son fantasticos. ¡Que detalles pones en todos! Enhorabuena Sadami. Un saludo

    Puff! You leave me speechless! They are fantastic. That put in all details! Sadami Congratulations. Greetings

  16. Dear Juan,
    Thank you! Your architecture is brilliant, which makes me speechless. Let us have fun in painting and encouraging each other!!
    Cheers, Sadami

    Estimado Juan,
    ¡Gracias! Su arquitectura es brillante, lo que me habla. Vamos a divertirnos en la pintura y el fomento de unos a otros!
    Saludos, Sadami

  17. Todos tus dibujos son fantásticos. Pero la ola es lo que más me ha gustado. Muy bueno!

  18. Dear Manel,
    Thank you so much! Your drawings, too, have outstanding impressions. Please keep up!
    Kind regards, Sadami

    Estimado Manel,
    ¡Muchas gracias! Sus dibujos también han impresiones pendientes. Por favor, mantenga arriba!
    Un cordial saludo, Sadami

    >>>Manel said...
    All your drawings are fantastic. But the wave is what I liked. Very good!

  19. Dear Sadami,
    Oh, yes, everything is constantly in the motion. We too! The time always runs in the same speed, but in our childhood we never care about it. When we enter into adulthood, we begin to worry about time's running. Completely unnecessary, anyway. :)
    I think, the time is the best teacher of serenity. So, we should enjoy every moment of our life, living here and now.
    Happy autumn, Sadami! :)

    P.S. Lovely paintings, so plenty of positive energy... And this old man touches my heart.

  20. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons ( the other one is Spring ), I love it even if it gives me a hint of melancholy , too..but we are now in full Spring and everything is an explosion of color , melancholy here, but a daily joy and enthusiasme !
    Your sketches are outstanding..a real joy.

  21. Dear Akwarelia,
    Thank U! Happy Spring to you! Very happy, you love that old man. We share time at hospital.

    Once, I asked a physics teacher what time was. Is it a matter like light or something like liquid? His explanations were different(later, I found them in Einstain--beyond my brain.)
    Today, "my" answer for what time is---"NOW" ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ!! Past is not a matter. Only Now that leads me to Future.
    Yes, full of positive energy!
    Cheers, Sadami

  22. Dear Jane,
    Sure you enjoy the color explosion there. Your watercolors have dynamic brush strokes and vivid colors, which attract viewers. Please keep up.
    Kind regards, Sadami

  23. Sadami, no dejo de asombrarme lo bien que dibujas y pintas. Una ola y su movimiento creo que es una delas cosas más difíciles para representar. Y lo has logrado.
    Africa de por medio, aquí en el cono sur compartimos el otoño. Un beso, desde Argentina

  24. Dear Isabel,
    Thank you! I love sketching waves. Yes, I know you and me are in the same southern hemisphir, (*not "down under"!!)=the same season. Please keep up your enthusiasm for architecture and love for people--I admire.
    Kind regards, Sadami

    Querida Isabel,
    ¡Gracias! Me encanta dibujar las olas. Sí, sé que usted y yo estamos en el sur de hemisphir mismo, (* no "hacia abajo en "!!)= la misma temporada. Por favor, mantenga su entusiasmo por la arquitectura y el amor por la gente - que admiro.
    Un cordial saludo, Sadami

    >>>Isbel said...
    Sadami not cease to be amazed how well they draw and paint. A wave and its movement delas think it is a most difficult things to depict. And you have succeeded.
    Africa in the way, here in the southern share fall. A kiss from Argentina

  25. [continue your answer to the previous post ...]

    Sadami - yes, we feel closer!
    art has the privilege of bringing souls ...

    thank you from the heart, for your words, my friend! your advice as to swimming, remained, and will be engraved in my mind for my next attempt in the water!
    I think when you learn to relax more in life,
    I will improve the column, no doubt!
    I am a Taurus, ascendant virgin ...
    imagine that 'boring' I am! :)

    I agree that nothing replaces our precious hands ... cook, draw, lift groceries, drive ...
    and also all the household work force tendons! I'm taking care, yeah!

    regarding this post,
    this watercolor of the sea is fantastic, you can feel the force of waves, and the color is sublime!
    autumn is my favorite season, just because I think it stands for, are the colors of the leaves! I love the colors burnt ocher, olive green, sienna, yellow! oh they are so pretty!
    and have this relationship, the beginning and end, very significant.

    Here in São Paulo weather is mild, a little hot in the morning and at night a chill very nice!
    Let's enjoy the fall, with all the gifts he brings us!

    thanks for everything
    Cheers & Love

  26. Beautiful post, Sadami.. your sketches are marvellous to view and your understanding is so compassionate. *hugs*
    Autumn to me is like the painting of you smiling amongst the falling leaves..
    Every season, young and old, they are all precious.I treasure and try to enjoy each one xx

  27. Dear Denise,
    Yes, physically and mentally, we are very close.

    Please take care of your scoliosis. I feel, if not healthy(=light hearted & cheerful), difficult to make happy art work. I'll swim this April. Yesterday, I made 1km. Let us encourage each other to achieve our goals, "becoming healthy."

    Oh, don't worry about an astrological sign. Already your art work has proven this truth that Denise, you're a wonderful, creative and exciting woman on the earth!! How can we categorize all of humans with only star signs?? (I still don't know how many star signs are used in astorogy).

    How are your hands and a new PC? Once, I suffered in sever arthritis and could not use either hands. So, I determined, when I would get well...
    a)take care of hands
    b)make lots of drawings/paintings!!
    and... to present.

    Thank you for the sensitive comment on my work.
    Enjoy your autumn in São Paulo:).
    Hugs&smile, Sadami

  28. Un bonito y bien ilustrado post, Sadami!

    El mar y su oleaje son preciosos, así como la moto y la expresión divertida de tu cara recibiendo las hojas de otoño :)

    Preciosos los colores de otoño que nos regala la Madre Tierra ;)

    Un abrazo

  29. Dear Pat,
    Thank you!! One day, you have to come to Sydney to enjoy a summer and an autumn. Very different from UK. Yes, yes, let us "treasure and try to enjoy each one xx."
    Hugs&Smile, Sadami

  30. Dear Joy,
    Oh, thanks a lot! Yes, the waves waves and the bike are getting Friends' best feedback.
    Certainly, Mother Nature is great and we should respect Her well.
    Kind regards, Sadami

    Estimado Joy,
    Oh, muchas gracias! Sí, las ondas de las olas y la moto a encontrar amigos de los mejores comentarios.
    Ciertamente, la madre naturaleza es grande y debemos respetar su bien.
    Un cordial saludo, Sadami

    >>>Joy said...
    A nice and well illustrated post, Sadami!
    The sea and its waves are beautiful and the bike and the amused expression on your face getting autumn leaves:)
    Beautiful autumn colors that Mother Earth gives us;)
    A hug

  31. Isn't life amazing, Sadami? Time keeps moving along and we must try to hold onto the minutes in a day, a difficult task. Before long winter passes and suddenly it's summertime. Enjoy the autumn!

  32. Hi, busy mom Dora!
    Ye~s, indeed, life is an amazing miracle. Oh, you're getting into spring. We're just opposite. I'll enjoy the autumn or the leftover summer?!
    Cheers, Sadami

  33. Indeed your sea looks rough compared to the Mediterranean sea. It's a strange feeling to know that it is autumn where you live while it's spring here. I love your sea and your lively sketches. I wish you lived closer so that we could join and paint together.
    Thank you very much for following my blog, Sadami. You are always so generous and kind.
    Have a nice week!


  34. Dear Ann,
    Thanks a lot!! The beach I sketch is famous and polupar for "surfurs"!
    Ah, if we have lived close, we could paint together. Hopefully, one day, we can see each other and share time to make paintings. It would be very much fun! Me, too, thank you for following my blog. You're always so nice! Thank you for Japanese.
    Cheers, Sadami

  35. A wonderful post, Sadam! I just enjoyed it all: the sketch of the waves (soooo beautiful!), your comments about the australian autumn, about the indissolubility of life and death (I think the same way, our existence is basically a continuous cycle life-death-life ...), about children who do not care about the sentimentalism of adults (but, however, understand more deeply who loves them, like you ...), and the wonderful Sadami who smiles in the rain of leaves .... thanks for this explosion of life and joy! A big hug!

  36. Dear Cristina,
    Thank you:)!! Your posts are full of beauty and philosopy -- quest for life&truth, wisdom, love... Every post leaves me a seed in a mind and it grows in a heart. I'd foster them day, bloom out!
    A big hug&smile, Sadami

  37. Hola Sadami, es verdad que el otoño es una estación muy bonita, pero aún me gusta más la primavera, nosotros empezamos a disfrutar de los días largos y más calurosos, ideales para pintar fuera.
    Estos bocetos son siempre maravillosos, que sean los más detallados como la moto, o simplemente cogiendo expresiones o movimientos como los de la niña, o la atmósfera del mar con sus olas, eres muy versátil y una gran dibujante, también me encanta el señor que se durmió leyendo su libro, la verdad es que dormirse una siesta en una tumbona debajo de un árbol es lo más grande.
    Gracias, saludos.

  38. Beautiful drawing of the sea Sadami, full of motion/emotion. I also dig the motorcycle. Nice detailing for someone who doesn't understand the enthusiasm men have for them. I see an appreciation for the machine in your drawing. Enjoy Fall. It's a fine season if no snow follows.

  39. Preciosos trabajos Sadami. Siempre tan personales. Me chifla la moto...
    Un saludo

  40. Dear Francis,
    Thank U! Oh, you'll enjoy sketching outside with your friends in spring. I'm not a multi-talented artist(*you know my fear of landscapes! I'm tackling my alergy this year) but I'll try. Like channels, we have many artistic outlets. To find them and maximizing them is a blessing on the earth.
    Kind regards, Sadami

    Estimado Francisco,
    Gracias U! ¡Oh, usted disfrutará de dibujo al aire libre con tus amigos en la primavera. No soy un artista de múltiples talentos (ya sabes * mi temor de los paisajes! estoy abordando mi Alergia este año), pero lo intentaré. Al igual que los canales, tenemos muchos puntos de venta artística. Para encontrarlos y la maximización de ellos es una bendición en la tierra.
    Un cordial saludo, Sadami

    >>>Francis said...
    Hello Sadami, it is true that the fall is a very nice season, but still I like the spring, we began to enjoy the long days and warmer, ideal for painting outside.
    These sketches are always awesome, they are the most detailed as the bike, or simply taking expressions or movements such as the girl, or the atmosphere of the sea with its waves, are very versatile and a great artist, I love the lord fell asleep reading your book, the truth is that taking a nap in a deck chair under a tree is larger.
    Thank you, greetings.

  41. Thank you, Linda!
    You have to come to Sydney with a swim suit and your tightened up body. I know your love for cars& machines that has impressed me so much. I really enjoyed sketching the Yamaha bike, while standing on a street. Many others also had fun. That's the bonus of sketching outside--sharing a joy. Ahahaha, we don't have snow in Sydney.
    Cheers, Sadami

  42. Dear Montse,
    Thank you! The "Big Waves" and the "Bike" seem to win readers hearts. I'm sure you love drawing and painting. Let us have fun together.
    Cheers, Sadami

    >>>Montse said...
    Sadami precious works. Always so personal. I dig the bike ...

  43. These are all so beautiful, and so full of life and emotion...You can't help but smile when browsing your work....thank you for sharing it.

  44. Dear Stephie,
    Thank you! Your work, too, is so beautiful, which caputres emotions. Your handling wash is so lovely. Please keep up.
    Kind regards, Sadami

  45. Hi, Sadami. My favourite is also 'Big waves', followed by 'Byke', you see, I'm not original. Of course I like also the others, always with your typical touch of humor. By the way, when you swim, beware of sharks!!! Cheers.

  46. Hi, Sadami:)
    Thank you for visiting my blog, even though "I`m not there..." Yes, I`ve been busy the last months, but I hope to get more time to sew now:) You have automn in Australia now, but we have SPRING, and with it a lot of light and energi:)
    And if I only could paint like you, I would certainly enjoy spring even more. To sit outside and paint those painting of yours...wish it was me:)Thank you for sharing:)

  47. Eres sencillamente maravillosa, alegre y divertida!

  48. Sadami, that ocean painting is just FABULOUS!!!!!! FABULOUS!!!
    And your motorcycle could be an ad the way it shines and draws the viewer right in.
    Always love your people as well.
    Sorry for being so late this week but I would never miss a post from you.


  49. Dear Albert,
    Ah, you're a man! The waves and the bike. Thank you for a kind concern about sharks. Some people became victims this year. So, my place, a "rock bath" filled with an ocean water is safe & nice. Also, the pooled water gets warmer than a sea. Only the concern is sometimes, "blue bottles"=Portuguese Man o' War that stings us with poison.
    Cheers, Sadami

  50. Dear Annepa,
    I love your hand crafts so much and admire your amazing skills. Let us make it clear "being what we are/become what we can be most" is the most precious thing on the earth. I do not sew like you, but I'm happy with being Sadami. If you really like to paint, please try it and have fun. But pursue your own style--that's the most important. Why Annepa is so lovely for me? Because Annepa is Annepa, not anyone esle. Hope my English makes sense.ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ
    Best wishes, Sadami

  51. Dear Maria,
    Thank U! Your work is always sensitive and beautiful that captures moment, movement and emotion very well. I admire you! Please keep up.
    Best wishes, Sadami

    Querida María,
    Gracias U! Su trabajo es siempre delicado y hermoso ese momento captura, movimiento y emoción muy bien. Te admiro! Por favor, seguir el ritmo.
    Mis mejores deseos, Sadami

    >>>>Maria said...
    You are simply wonderful, happy and fun!

  52. Dear Teri,
    Thanks millions! Sure we encourage each other and I have not a single doubt in our friendship!! So, please never say sorry and put your busy life first.
    Regarding the bike, thank you for the wonderful suggestion. I wish I could get an approach from a company.
    Mmmm...well, I have to die in poverty as an artist?!
    Cheers&hugs, Sadami

  53. I am to a great extent impressed with the article I have just read interesting very good.I read the Blog Nice site I found and I bookmarked the site.

  54. Hi, Beach Bike,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and nice encouragement. I hope I will keep up good work.
    Cheers, Sadami

  55. You have no idea how much your ocean paintings move me! Wonderful. I am so impressed with the painting of the main reclining with the book - very beautiful words below.

  56. Oh, Wren, thank you so much for a kind say and encouragement. I sketched an ocean on spot. The gentleman and I were at hospital and ecnourage each other:).
    Kind regards, Sadami
