Anzac Day is Australia’s national war memorial day... One day I would like to get up for the dawn service..but it ain’t going happen if I stay up late sketching! So when I saw in our local paper what was planned at a park in my suburb(in Sydney), I decided on a little adventure after breakfast – only had an hour so quick sketches... But certainly a nice thing to do!
Here is a photo I took from my iphone of myself sketching this morning
sitting on my stool in the sun. I am somewhat amazed that holding my phone in the air above my shoulder actually produced a reasonable photo!
The rest of the day was spent at my brother’s place celebrating my nephew’s 2nd birthday with the immediate families. A lovely day, and I was able to sketch while we all sat around in the backyard on a warm sunny autumn afternoon. The birthday boy came up and when he saw my sketches, picked up is new present, the ‘boy doll’ and said “same!”.
