I am trying to pretend that I am on one of my adventure holidays in another state or country so that I don’t waste time just hanging at home… so today I had another sketching day in the city. This time with a friend, Wendy (quirkyartist on flickr). Spent the first two hours at the courtyard cafe at Sydney Hospital
The general view from our table – Sydney Hospital.
Once again I have to be careful with the harsh Australian light… really trying to push myself to do more perspectives and complicated scenes.
Next location was in sitting on a bench in the shade looking towards an historic church. Lovely cool breeze blowing on a warm day.
St James Church, Sydney
After lunch (I did not draw lunch!) we went to Hyde Park and I sketched St Mary’s cathedral. This is a nice little section of Sydney! A great day.
Then I did a bit of shopping and ended up at… T2 tearoom AGAIN! Do you realise in my first 2 days of holiday I have had 3 tearoom experiences!?!
This is my last T2 visit for this year… I’m sure!!!!
