From my sketchbook: Litchfield National Park

litchfield national park

Water pools in water holes above Tolmer Falls, flows down waterfalls along Walker Creek, splashes into the pool at the base of Florence Falls. It is always agitated, bubbling and swirling and rushing. impossible to capture in still ink. I try anyway. Drawing the water is a study in contrasts – hot and cool, still and flowing, silent and noisy.

The days are hot during the dry season at Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory and, with the exception of the water, it is lazy and peaceful. Perfect conditions for drawing the natural environment.
