The journey is now complete – the items collected and sketched from beaches and river banks along Yorke Peninsula and Kangaroo Island in South Australia have been put together in one large drawing. As with part 1 (click here to see it) doing the drawings took me back to our journey. Yorke Peninsula is flat and agricultural, good crops everywhere we went. The place we stayed longest was Cable Bay, in the Innes National Park at the very tip of the peninsula. The beach was long and clean, with plenty of interesting rock forms. Kangaroo Island was different again, each beach having its own character, but so many had interesting and unusual shells and rocks. There were many other points of interest there, the seals and sea lions, strange and inexplicable bits of flotsam and jetsam, pieces of rope and wood, but something that struck me was the abundance of rich colour in the objects I found. Doing these drawings has taken me on an enjoyable virtual journey.
