Way back, in 1844, August 10th, Captain Charles Sturt led the Central Australian Expedition from Adelaide, along the Murray and the Darling Rivers before heading where no European had been before. The quest was to find the sea which Sturt and his sponsors believed occupied the heart of Australia.
The expedition's outfit consisted of: 16 men,11 horses, 30 bullocks.1 boat and boat carriage. 1 horse dray.1 spring cart.3 drays, 200 sheep for food, two sheep dogs, and four kangaroo dogs. The journey failed to find the mythical inland sea.
I made this sketch for the Illustration Friday topic of "water".

This is last weeks Illustration Friday topic of "shiny", inspired by braces on the teeth of someone I know. No, they are not cow-like . either!! It will do for this weeks topic of "secret", as Kara had to keep the braces hidden form the others in the herd.
I did this one about A4 size with pastel on watercolour paper, just to see and play with other media than digital, although it does have a bit of digital enhancing.
