A big day at Cockatoo Island

120414 My Sketching at Cockatoo Island today
Did way too much sketching today! Here is the day in full (including the sketch I dislike very much!) But apart from that one – I am very happy with what I managed to do today. I had all kinds of plans of what I was going to sketch but someone … when I am on location I just sketch what I feel compelled to sketch!

I took my dad to Cockatoo Island today (his first visit) He loves taking photos so had a great time. (Aside: I would love to go there with my camera and no sketchbook one day…somehow I don’t think that that is possible!)

Anyway, I was free to sketch and sketch and sketch on my own. Here is a collection of photos that he took of me today.
Cockatoo Island is my favourite place in Sydney – there is SO much there to see, explore and sketch that it is a bit overwhelming. This is the second time there this week!!!
Those that have seen the wonderful sketches of Alissa and Wendy and Annie in the last week might recognise a few of these views

Also, I must mention that next Saturday – 21st April is another International Sketchcrawl day and we are heading back to Cockatoo Island – we would love to have you join us if you can!!!

Warning this is going to be a LONG post!

Another view of the rear of the drawing office – with minimum lines- open corners if I could. And simple colour…but you can read that in the my notes!
