Inside the tip shop

A highlight of any week is a visit to the local tip shop, where all manner of stuff gets re-cycled. I’d planned to sit inside the big shed and draw, but got diverted finding pre-loved items for our garden.

Icame home with several items including this weird looking contraption which is actually the top of two bird cages that have been wired together to form a protector that can be placed over plants to save them from the ravages of the local fauna. In our case this is saving our beetroot from being anihilated by our local brushtail possum.

From a drawing perspective I was attracted to the colour contrast between the duck-egg blue wire on top and the black metal on the rest of the cage. The repetitive lines of wire also get the big tick from me.
