Hey St Peters!

Who likes storage containers?! I'm not talking about any Scandinavian interlocking eco-friendly pantry organisers. I'm talking about the big mac of storage containers, like so... You know you are an artist when an industrial site gets you excited. So on a cool winter's day I met up with the Sydney Sketch Group in St Peter's,... Continue Reading →

Hidden in Rookwood

Sydney Sketch Club organised a meet up for the annual Hidden Walk art exhibition at Rookwood Cemetery in Sydney. Thankfully it was only in a small section of the grounds as it is one large mother of a cemetery. This is my third or fourth sketching venture to a cemetery so won't bore you with the reasons...

Cockatoo Island revisited

It may be hard for... Continue Reading →

Back in December 2010 I started this blog with the whole premise of finding a style that I was happy with, or to see if I had a style at all. I was testing myself on all levels – landscape drawing, still life, different mediums, participating in online projects like Urban Sketches, Sketchbook Project, Everyday... Continue Reading →

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 →

Put your hands up in the air!

SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP My blog’s main objective is to help people draw hands – in different angles or positions, of different ages and in various forms of action. They are an endless source of visual material. Of course I’m not an expert, I just love to draw! [INSERT CORNY HAND PUN HERE] The human figure... Continue Reading →
