Kangaroo With Girl – #NatureDoodlewash

Today for my #NatureDoodlewash  hike, I had an imaginary walk across the wonderful Australia a land that I always wanted to go visit…and it didn’t happen yet! Maybe one day!  For this watercolor I was inspired by a beautiful Magazine Cover that portrait a model holding a Kangaroo. A couple of weeks ago I was visiting a Barnes and Nobles Book store and I loved that cover so much that instantly I had the urge to sketch it.

I am so glad that I had my sketchbook with me and while sipping a coffee I sketched. I followed pretty much the lines and the pose, but I changed the girl expression and colors giving her a different look.  I wanted her to have purple hair  and be a whimsical girl. She hold the cute kangaroo on her shoulder close to her neck. It is a portrait very similar to the “Girl with a Bird” I made not long ago.  I love Kangaroos and I really enjoyed to paint once again an image of love. I hope that you like it!

I connected with Miriam  about two months ago we came across each other Blogs and we followed and stayed connected. Miriam is a lovely friend here on the Bloghosphere I always love her comments to my posts. She has a lovely family and live in Australia on the outskirts of Melbourne,  she love to travel and professionally writes about all her adventures!

Miriam posts on her beautiful Blog are a joy to read and are accompanied by her beautiful and interesting photography. Published freelance writer, she contributing with numerous Australian Travel Magazines.


This is an excerpt of her About page…

Hi, I’m Miriam. Thanks so much for dropping by and checking out my blog.   I’ve been putting words to paper ever since I can remember and, in my late twenties, a Comprehensive Writing Course lead me to my passion – writing about places I visit and the people I meet along the way.  I also discovered it’s a great way to journal life.

It was then I decided to try writing for magazines. It was hard work and it took years, but today I can finally say I’m a published freelance writer. Along with some casual copy-writing work it’s exciting to be contributing regularly to a number of well established Australian travel magazines, which you can view here.  And equally exciting to be writing my own blog.

My travels have taken me to Europe, Asia and the Pacific however I’m now enjoying the delights of my own backyard, right here in Australia.  So whenever I can I hit the road and write, I take photos and relish the great outdoors. I hope through this blog I can share my life, not just on the tracks but close to home, doing ordinary everyday stuff.

When I’m not traveling I live on the outskirts of Melbourne with a wonderful man who shares my sense of adventure and two teenage children who keep me on my toes. I enjoy the simple pleasures of life: keeping fit, walks with my dog, dance and Zumba, playing my guitar, good food, red wine, dark chocolate, hanging out with friends and generally trying to make the most out of life.

Come with me as I get out and about in this world where we’re all connected. And, if you want to comment on any of my posts, or just say hello, I would love to hear from you” – Miriam
