110115 A few hours in the Gardens

January 18, 2011 | Leave your thoughts

I am spending as much time as I can these days in the Sydney Botanic Gardens (I will explain why in a week or so) and have started a separate sketchbook for my garden sketches. .

Here are a few that I did on Saturday – it wasn’t the most pleasant day… I find high humidity very draining but still I sketch and sketch….

Perhaps sitting in the succulent garden in the middle of the day was NOT a good idea – it is hot here in the middle of winter!

Was fun to sketch the fountain and watch all the people come up and drink – even try to have a water fight with the bubblers – but I did try to keep an eye on this toddler (where was his mother?)
