Quick sketches

I've had so much on this year that getting out to sketch on location is a luxury. I've allowed  myself once a month to go out with one of my local sketch groups. On the weekend we went to the Sydney Fish Markets. The weather has been really unpredictable lately so packed mediums that I... Continue Reading →

South of the border

I spent a week in August with my sketching friends down in Melbourne. A few had other objectives that week other than sketching,  but for me that was my main focus. After a very personal ordeal, I needed to get back on track and remember what it is like to sketch out and about again. There was... Continue Reading →

Newcastle USK

The first Urban Sketchers Australia outing for the year was a day trip to Newcastle. Over two hours by train from Sydney - the three things I always associate with this city are - surfing beaches, mining and the rugby league team, Newcastle Knights. I had never been there before (I know, shameful) so I... Continue Reading →

Urban Sketchers at Hyde Park

I managed to get to an Urban Sketchers event on the weekend, but only had half a day to draw. Feeling a little guilty to be enjoying such a beautiful day when there have been raging bushfires happening in greater Sydney and country NSW - very scary and disheartening for all those poor people who...

Urban Sketchers meet up

I finally found time to head out to an Urban Sketchers Australia meet up. I couldn't stay the entire day so I went in earlier to get a head start. After spending some time considering how to approach drawing architecture (see Brick by Brick post) I really wanted to implement what I learnt. It wasn't so... Continue Reading →

Abu Dhabi Do!

In February I was given the exciting opportunity to travel to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to play with TaikOz. A huge honour, considering I'm not one of their more dedicated students. It was a unique advenutre and a bit of an insight into the life of a professional touring musician, and it... Continue Reading →

1st Urban Sketchers Australia meet up

It was a much needed day out of sketching for me, and although Sydney was thrown into 40˚ heat leading up to our first Urban Sketchers Australia meet up, the gods were fairly decent towards us on the day. The gardens are a lovely refuge in the inner city and even though there was a... Continue Reading →

Sydney Open Day

The Historic Houses Trust of NSW ran a "long" weekend event called Sydney Open. With the co-operation of several private and public buildings in the city centre they opened their doors to the general public for a look round. It was a drawing opportunity I could not miss, so went along Friday night with the Sydney Sketch... Continue Reading →

Brick by Brick

Over the last month or so I have undertaken a study into drawing architecture. Now that I’m drawing outdoors more and living in an inner-city suburb I’m increasingly aware of buildings and architectural structures dominating much of the urban landscape. So now that I am drawing outdoors more I cannot avoid architecture in my drawings... Continue Reading →
