Revisiting Middle Head

Went back to on of my favourite places in Sydney today as it was a lovely warm day. The point of the visit was to take photos for the 2 Cre8it courses I am doing at the moment....but of course I had to sketch as well. Then went shopping and stopped for a coffee and of course had to sketch that as well!

080925 EDM 190 - My Palette

I am missing my sketching now that I am back from holidays. This weeks challenge is a nice way to complete my trip - the state of it at the end.

Mine is constantly changing as I explore the amazing qualities of different watercolour paints - so much to learn!

Day 8 - Last day around Battery Point

Day 7 - Huon River and Hartz Mountains

Day 6 - Back down the Heritage Hwy

Day 5 - North Coast

Day 4 - A mountain driving day

Day 3 - Up the Heritage Hwy

Another busy day! Notes on the pages explain it all!

Day 2 - Sunday Notes

Here are the notes that I took at church – decorated the next morning before breakfast from the flowers in my room

Day 1 - Hobart and Richmond

Hard to believe.. but I filled 12 pages on my first day!First day - the view out my window.

(BTW, I write down some notes from the book I am reading in the morning each day so I can read them later on - A commentary on Psalm 119 by William Bridges)

Of course I have to draw at breakfast time the first day.

Using watercolour pencils for ease in the museum.

A sit down means a sketch - just so happens to have some food in it!

Lunch....more food

After lunch got in my car and went for a drive to a beautiful historic town of Richmond.
Although this was coffee stop - I didn't draw the food

First day still...the famous bridge but not from the famous side (have to be there in the morning to be on the side that you can see the church in the background)

First day still...One of the famous buildings in the town

First day still...I think my loose style is more suited to decorative building - I find the crisp simple precise Georgian buildings of Tasmania a real challenge as I just don't have the patience to do them carefully - so I was trying to do a partial representation here.

Yeah - more food to finish the day off

Tasmania Trip - First Night

Just back from a weeks holiday in which I filled a large WC moleskine totally.
The first night I got off to a good start with 4 pages!
