Had a lovely morning in the city sketching today with Alissa.
I enjoy talking about architecture sketching but am increasingly finding sketching buildings in Sydney a little boring (no Baroque buildings, no Italian piazzas) just lots of Victorian Architecture… big & blocky with little variation in wall planes facing busy streets… and very little exciting public spaces.
The bright intense Australian sun certainly seemed to affect my painting… Subtle is definitely out of my reach today(even more than normal… Subtle Liz I don’t think ever exists!!!) and I was too heavy handed with the pigment. It does seem to happen a lot to me when I sit in the sun.
Back to work tomorrow!
