100515 Sketchcrawl 27

warning - long post today!!!!
Here are my sketches from the sketchcrawl today... I LOVE sketching...but all this scanning is a bit of a chore!
Needless to say it was a wonderful day!!!
And it also made me aware yet again how much I love my hometown and our stunning harbour. It was a big day for Sydeny - the harbour and the Opera House was the stage for the homecoming of Jessica Watson - 16yr old girl who has sailed around the world. We missed out on all the action - but there is no avoiding it on the TV!

once again I have that classic sketchers squint expression - very flattering isn't it?!? You can tell that I don't take myself too seriously!

  12. If your day was anywhere near as sunny as your sketches, it must have been a great day to be out!

    Love your watercolour style - it inspires. Can't wait to see more.

  14. Great stuff as usual, Liz! I dunno why, I thought you used a smaller sketchbook. Hope you enjoyed the day as much as we enjoy your art :)

  15. WOW! I am so extremely envious! Not only did you have a great big group for sketch crawl, you get to sketch in Sidney! I was there once when I was 12, which was quite a while ago, and I would really like to go back some day. It's a beautiful city!

    Great sketches, and it looks like you had a wonderful day!

  16. Wow,I love your sketches! The architectural drawings are so amazing! It looks like the Sketchcrawl was tons of fun. Thanks for including the pics. I think we all get either that squint or the blank I'm-lost-in-my-drawing stare.
