I might go out sketching on my own – or travel solo but going out to a concert on my own is not something I have done before. But I was given a free ticket for a concert last night.(Thanks Jenny- I REALLY enjoyed it!!!)
To make the evening more interesting I parked my car at Milsons Point on the northside of the harbour and walked across the harbour bridge to get to Angel Place and then back again- did it all exactly within my 4 hour parking restriction and walked approx 6km. Lovely mild evening and the ever changing lights on the Opera House (part of a special Light festival) made the walk even more interesting. REALLY quick sketch on the bridge on my way over.
I got to the Recital Hall early to do a careful sketch of the interior – but the seat next to me was occupied by an artist – and a watercolour portrait artist (even better!) – so I chatted instead…which is really far better. Dee’s work is great and can be seen here
I am so out of practice of drawing people but at the same time was more interested in trying to capture the movement of the bow and string instruments in making the music – so here are all my loose sketches – I sketched nearly all the time.
I really should do this more often!!! Running out of pages in my book and also I freeze up a bit when I do these type of sketches in my book – so did a lot on loose paper and a few in the back page. I then had some collage to do when I got home!
