Ordinary Life

December 2, 2011 | 4 Comments

    I suppose it is nothing new for me to say that I think I am addicted to sketching on location…. But the last month or so, for various reasons, I have not been able to get out much and I have REALLY missed it. This week I have been thinking that I have to try to get out at lunch and sketch more but I find the scenes of my ordinary fairly uninspired… But I have found some work of fellow urban sketchers this week which have made me realise that this is a silly attitude…

Anyway – this afternoon after work I was feeling a wee bit flat(sometimes it happens even to me!) despite the fact that the weekend was starting. So I went to my ‘ordinary’ (understatement!!!) Friday afternoon sketching venue. I don’t think I will EVER get over how special the view from Milson’s Point is!!!!


Started of with the usual view….

…then thought I should sketch the bridge (I normally chicken out from attempting this level of complexity)

….and then more of the bridge.

Time to go… And then excitement as a cruise ship left… Always gives me a lovely holiday feeling.
Having fun adding text and solid colour to a very quick sketch attempted with a pen that was NOT cooperating. What a wonderful 1.5 hours of sketching (though it was some communication via mobile phone that REALLY picked me up…not the sketching on its own!)
