Classic Car

I also sketched Chalmers, Model 20, 1913. I had no idea about mechanics though, I simply loved drawing them all in the classic car show on Australia Day in almost 40 'C! Painstaking, but a great fun. 

This is the owner of this Chalmers, Model 20, 1913. My work pleased him and his club members. Thank you. After being grilled in the hot air, I escaped to the RSL club for a cold drink. 

I've accumulated classic cars drawings in a file. I might as well explore cars and mechanics onward. 
Friends, Happy Painting! Btw are you in a winter? 


Australia Day, Hot Air Balloons

Sydney sketch club enjoyed sketching hot air balloons in the event of Australia Day in Parramatta Park. Seeing is believing, is my policy (?!) in drawing. So, I try to sketch interesting subjects as many as possible. As long as I have a drawing experience of a subject, I can illustrate it more easily and accurately.   
We joined the event from 6 am. Crews were preparing many balloons. They were colourful and joyful. May these balloons symbolise reconciliation and mutual respect between Indigenous Australians and non Indigenous Australians.  
It was fun to draw them. Next time, if I illustrate the images of air balloon, I will confidently make it. 
So, Friends, Happy Painting as many as possible!

Support of Primary School Burnt to Ashes by Bush Fires

Kids, residents, never give up. We always think of you all affected by bushfires. My picture books with messages are on the way to the rural primary school burnt to ground. 
I cannot hold tears when I see the news on bush fires. Everyday, always, all the time, when I think of it, I shed tears. I'm so proud of our Australian book publishing community, such a wonderful bond, support and a high spirit. Oh, I love it.
Children, enjoy reading!!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. May peace, no bush fire and the greenish earth be upon you. 明けましておめでとうございます。2019年もお世話になりました。今年もよろしくお願い致します。どうか山火事が収まり, Australia 大量の雨が ふりますように!! 
Sydney Sketch Club and I enjoyed Sydney TownHall free organ recitals in Dec. These young talented organists will lead our music world. Sketching the magnificent organ is challenging! Yet, I love it. Thank you very much for the great recitals, lovely friendship and support in 2019. Please guide me and foster our friendship in 2020.

I also drew the map all on the globe. 
I hope 2020 will be creative and productive to you, all, Friends! 
Happy Painting always!
