A wet Saturday in town

June 2, 2012 | Leave your thoughts

Sorry… I just can’t help myself can I??? Big day planned but I was getting distracted this morning. As I recently found a brand new new ochre watercolour pencil on my desk I decided that I wanted to use for the outlines. Was very much fun.
On the left – trip prep idea… To take notes on loose sheets of paper beforehand and then collage these in when on location. Will post more on this idea soon.

I always see things to draw when I am rushing to somewhere else… When I have time, I seem to lack inspiration! Quick sketch of Sydney hospital on the way to morning tea… Once again under 5 min sketch with my Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. Sadly, all my plans for sketch today (the first day out I have had in weeks and weeks) did not happen as it rained and rained. Did a little bit of shopping instead.

Morning at the Tea Cosy with Alissa, Wendy and Annie. Obviously trying my recent inkless adventures on location and with friends (quite a different thing than in the comfort of my own home ‘studio’ environment)

We sat upstairs and on the balcony today… Perfect to try a vertical format. This is the first time that I have done this and considering I was talking / involved in a conversation at the time, I found it a little hard to get things in the right place. I do not have the same invisible viewfinder in my brain for this orientation as I do for horizontal formats(does that make any sense?)
