Coochie Sisters

It was fairly brisk on Saturday morning while we waited for the barge to take us over to Coochie Mudlo Island - a perfect break for sisters to catchup on art, life and each other. we arrived a lot earlier than check in time - and headed around to Norfolk beach where we did black on black charcoal drawings - and waited for our rooms to be ready. It was a long, long day and well ... we did get a lot of drawing done! Also experimented with charcoal backgrounds - for the first hour using only an eraser to create light areas, and the next hour using willow to develop the darker spaces. The third hour was a free for all ...
 Loved the view to Stradbroke Island - huge chill factor but hard to believe this is what we call the middle of winter. It was an absolutely stunning weekend.
