I'm a big fan of winter but even I'm over the cold season this year. And without fail on the 1st September (for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere) it was a warm, sunny spring day. Work has been very manageable this week so it allowed me some free time to sit in my... Continue Reading →
I cannot believe we are four months into the new year - it's ridiculous. It's been awhile since I did some Urban Sketching, admittedly I never felt motivated too, but once I did one I wanted to keep going. I also drew my first "ghost" stop - which is a bus stop that is no... Continue Reading →

And unlike other gestural drawing I've done - none of their moves were repeated,like dancers going through a... Continue Reading →
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.
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 →
