I cycled into town to get some photos printed and while I was waiting, popped into the Canberra Museum and Gallery to sketch this burnt-out dishwasher. It belonged to the Cox family whose home and possessions were destroyed in the 2003 bushfires.
There was also a marvellous collection of Clarice Cliff ceramics.
I love the colours of her pieces but it's only now that I have a little box of water colour paints that I realize that her colours are straight from a simple set of watercolours - some photos of her sketchbook pages confirm this. (I gave up trying to get the outer rim of the plate symetrical) 12 km cycle.
