As you can see, I arrived safely in Australia. We are staying in a lovely wooden cabin, in a remote seaside community called Peaceful Bay, where it is cooler than Perth. We are here for another week, before we travel back to begin my residency.
Mostly, so far, I have been passing the time swimming, boating and lounging about, all of which is great fun of course, but I had an especially interesting day on Wednesday. Professor Parker, who commissioned my work here, also has a holiday cabin at Peaceful Bay. She thought it might be useful to do a try-out, since she spotted a great candidate for her research.
It was hard-going in the full sun, so when possible I tried to find at least partial shade, which did dictate to some extent what I drew.
