A train thundered past, one of the old diesel trains with tourists riding along this west coast and it seemed to be full of people. They chose a good day to take the journey. It was a lovely day to just sit a while and watch as the tide came in, slowly creeping over the sand and covered it with water. I watched the three orange boats glide on the surface of the tide and back into the river. It is quite rare to see any boats using this river so I watched with interest.
I found my first find in the sand. I knew the leaf would be lovely to draw, after photographing it I peeled it from the muddy sand. I had a long slow wander, taking in the views and looking at the objects in the tideline. There was plenty to choose from with seaweeds and feathers, leaves and seeds, crabs and shells and lots of red berries. I always collect too much so I tried to just gather a few things that would make an interesting page. The two crab apples went straight into my bag and so did the red berries. I felt reluctant to leave as it was so lovely, so warm I had taken my fleece off and wrapped it around my waist. I watched a man and his dog cross the bridge to the larger shore and wander into the distance. I found I was not alone, I had my shadow to keep me company. Just as I was leaving I heard the jingle of the icecream man, with no money on me I had to pass him by.
Hope you like my week 41 page, painted with my acrylic inks, the mixing shown on my messy plate.
