May 26, a "mountain," EDiM for Sydney Sketch Club

Hi, Friends, I've chosen the image from the man from Snowy river for the theme, a mountain. Have you ever heard of "The man from Snowy river?" It's originally the poem written by an Australian bush poet Banjo Paterson. The poem, which is like an Australian cultural icon, has been made into films and children picture books. So, I really wanted to draw the highlight scene, the young hero bravely swung his whip round, gave his horse a cheer and ran down the wild and dangerous mountain, while others were standing and only watching it in fear (of course, they expected that young man should die! But not!). 
A poem gives readers imagination and inspiration. I'd like to read more poems and create images for them. Also, a poem shows so beautiful sounds and a sophisticated word play. I'd enjoy them more and more!

Oh, yes, the opening of "Ryde Women's Art Ehibition" is tomorrow evening from 6pm to 8pm! Come over and let's have fun!!  
See Street Gallery at Sydney Gallery School and owned by TAFE NSW, Meadowbank. 

Now, a theme for May 27 is "Milk."
Friends, Happy Painting!!


  1. I agree that sounds and actions make a still picture (or poem) come to life. Being mobile definitely adds excitement to the object and tells the story better. You make me want to retrieve my old books from the self storage and re-enact them back to my nieces and nephews when they come visit during the school breaks.

  2. Thank you very much, Cameron. Yes, have a wonderful time with your nieces and nephews. Young children are very inspirational for anyone, too. I hope you will enjoy drawing more than ever. Drawing is a great pleasure and joy. Best wishes, Sadami
