A fun day of sketching on Xmas Eve…the only drama was that I forgot to take my paint tin with me!

As it was a big sketching day… I bought 6 tubes of standard paints and a small pencil set to use as a temporary palette. Thanks to Kate Johnson’s brillant idea I edned up using the pencil tray for mixing – it worked very well today!

And back to Martin Place for some more architecture sketching – I was quite in the groove until I was interrupted by a freindly passer-by. Somehow that made me lose concentration and I too overdid the colour.
