My theme for my new Urban Sketches book in 2012 is "Scenes from a Bus Stop"
International Scratch Crawl
The Sydney group had arranged the International Sketchcrawl venue in Hyde Park, but on cue the rain came bucketing down. (What makes me cringe is that when I got home that afternoon the sun came out, and has been out for the rest of the weekend!!) However, the Australian Museum was a nice alternative, and...

Happy New Year!
I made the most of my precious client-free week inbetween Xmas and NY Day and got a lot of drawing and painting done. How blissful it was! I managed a couple more Urban Sketches, which completes one book. So I will start the new year with a new book. I was thinking of drawing scenes... Continue Reading →

It's travelling globally and its first stop is Sydney. I went in a... Continue Reading →
Urban Sketches in Newtown
An evening out gave me a chance to do some more local sketches. Click here for a closer look.
Urban Sketches in July
Just a couple more additions to my Urban Sketchers Sydney page. One of Marrickville Road and a couple down at Tempe – which is well worth another visit. But why is it that I always ended up going on overcast days? For a more detailed look and read click here.
more urban sketchers
Although I have been drawing heaps these last few months, not a lot to show on this blog site. But hoping to fit in more hand studies in July. However, managed to do two urban sketches - unfortunately one month apart. Now that it is winter the days are shorter and we have had the... Continue Reading →
