Quiet reflections on a netball court

Over the years we have spent many hours on the cold, wintry sidelines of the netball courts in Bathurst. More recently I’ve been walking Polly across them of a morning.

We’ve finally got some winter and there’s been rain – too too much of it on the coast but out our way it’s been much much needed. And with the rain has come the colour. Deep and autumnal, the hidden textures that are washed out in summer have been quietly revealing themselves.

Beautiful little landscapes so easily overlooked.


Mini aerials from central Australia.




Soft, shadowy coastal hues.


Who knew there were paintings waiting to be painted in them their netball courts.

A quiet exercise in abstraction. In simplification. In looking.


That’s my current here and now.

Stay warm lovelies.

      Wow! A whole new way of looking at the courts that I, like many others, did not appreciate on many a frosty morning. Lovely Marg.

        Marginally warmer than sitting in one spot with pencil and paper. I picked the wrong time of year to set myself a sketching challenge πŸ™‚

        Thanks Steph. One of the big pleasures here is knowing that it makes some people look a little differently at their part of the world. Hope all’s well. x
