From The Dictionary of Sidney

I regularly try to take a course that inspires my art and creativity. I just started one from the Univ of Newcastle, Australia, on Natural History Illustration.

This morning has been an introduction to historical illustrators from the Hunter Valley area in Australia. I have fallen in love with Helena and Harriet Scott’s work from the mid 19th century.

Their work is exquisite.

NOTE: There is actually an ap of their work. Talk about making the old new again!
