Hi All!

Got to spend a few hours sketching at Southbank here in sunny Brisbane. It was really hot and humid (we're just getting into summer here), but there were plenty of people around at the Sunday markets and Kodak beach, so there were lots of great poses and actions to sketch.

Lookin good Andy. I like the gestures and lines in the second and third ones. They look like they are really moving around. From your sketches I wish I could've been in Brisbane with you!

Great fluid gesture drawings Andy! The beach looks like it was a great spot for people watching.

Thanks for the comments!

James: Yeah it was great trying to draw the kids at the beach as they messed around in the sand - they don't hold still for long :)

FAB: It was really a great day to sketch beach-goers. Kodak beach is actually a man-made one in a big recreational area called Southbank in the city - there's always plenty of interesting things going on there.

Paintmonster: Thanks Marty! There were a LOT of poses like that from where I was sitting - lots of people's backs!

Alisa: Thanks! It sure was an awesome place to do some figure sketching.

Amelia: I was definitely trying to get the action of the (sometimes very brief) poses, glad you liked them :)

Andy - nice gestures, and your location...the beach! sounds wonderful. I remember sketching in that same type of heat/humidity while friends thought I was crazy :lol:

andy .. how could it come, that I only watched you drawings and didn't comment. It's been a while since I spent some time in one of the most undervalued Australian cities ... but, I really "re-felt" the peculiar atmosphere of artsitic and natural things built up on Southbanks. You really got a good cross section of many people going there for different reasons.
I really like the last picture with your sport-motion studies!!
