080822 Catching up

I have been really slack keeping my blog up to date lately... I also have to apologise for the large photos that were slowing it down... hopefully I have fixed that.

Had a busy time lately so here are a few sketches that I have done...

080805 Family Dinner
Last night before my sister and brother-in-law return home to the UK. I hope you all notice that i made an attempt to draw some people (a very half hearted attempt I know... but at least I tried!)
080816 Visiting the M___s
Visiting some friends....this was my warm up. I also sketched some of my friends in my people book - but wasn't sure whether I will post them or not!
In the end...decided that I would... so here they are... No one was sitting still for very long so some are not completed. Likeness is totally lacking!

But at least I tried. Having a small separate book for people does certainly help the' fear factor' a lot I try not to let this book get much public circulation.

080802 Two days out

Friday: Day off work and second visit to Cockatoo Island
Went here for the last sketchcrawl and back the second time today - I love this place!!! Took a lot of photos this time and only quick sketches - very hard to do in very strong and cool wind.There is so much room for improvement when on location and with limited time - need to do it more often!

A few sketches that night when I got home.... couldn't do my birthday present justice....

Very late night sketch...time to stop! A building doodle painted with my squirrel brush. I extended the sky back into the page before to tie the spread together.

Today: Saturday
A big family get together....Far too involved in our big family reunion picnic to even think about getting my sketchbook out - so did a page when I got home
