great sketches David and love the map as well!
I didn't make it out on Saturday with the group either... but here are my sketches done during the day at home - views of the suburbia of Sydney!
Colorbond Roof extensions and solar panels. Unlike the extension I posted the other day, this one retains the scale of the existing californian bungalow. We are the only ones (from tour battleaxe block) who really see the new shining roof.
Celebrating 2 weeks detox from black tea (earl grey in particular) A few people have wanted to see me do a colour chart of the different coloured teas I have been drinking in the last 2 weeks... I thought I would sketch the cups as well. I am so OVER drawing tea cups as a result of doing this today!
An afternoon reading in the garden.... here is the accompanying sketch. Hills hoist (clothes drying line) and Lap and cap is the fence. the palings are lapped and then capped. (a cheaper fence is just lapped and not capped)
Josu from Spain (Basque Country to be exact) recently got a pilot parallel pen and did some amazing things with it. I resisted the urge for a week or so... but after seeing his great sketches I weakened. It is a calligraphy pen and delightfully unpredictable (at the moment till I get the hang of it) Sketch of the front cover of a book near where I was sitting and a view of my study.
I will organise a post of what the group of sketchcrawlers actually did on Saturday...soon!
