Other recent adventures in my sketchbook

May 18, 2015 | 4 Comments

If you have been wondering… despite sometimes struggling to do the Every Day in May challenge each day,  I have still doing my regular sketching. And that includes the usual suspects….

A cup of tea sketch… to get me going on a Friday morning.

A Saturday afternoon visit to The Vogue Cafe at Macquarie Centre…

And a quick sketch of their bench.

A sketch of my brunch  after a meeting at Balmain (about a new and very exciting project!)

And before the same meeting, I  did sketch of the Balmain Post Office. This was will be included in a magazine article being published soon. I won’t say anymore yet, but this is what I managed to get done in the 20 minutes that I had. The important part of this sketch was the first step which I am keeping for the publication.

And this is the final version – a few more details and darks added – plus the sky.

And a few less standard stuff which were also for projects.

A 3d plan view of my studio…

And a House Portrait commission for neighbours who have sold their house and are downsizing. Will be sad not having them around!

  • Not sure if it is my different computer screen but there is a softness to these sketches that is just lovely, Liz. Your neighbors' house is so nice!

    Hi Liz,
    I have been enjoying your newsletter no end. I have just started SBS 'Seeing' this week so will be joining in a few weeks for your stint and looking forward to it very much.
    Your neighbour's house looks great and I'd be delighted with the sketch of it if were selling my place. One thing I'd love to know is where you were sitting to draw the studio plan. 😉 It's great!

    Thanks Sherry… not sure if they are that much different – but as always I love hearing from you!

    HI Ros – looking forward to hanging out over a cuppa tea during Seeing.
