A really great sketchcrawl today – 14 people and we explored the most important and historic street in Sydney on a gloriously warm (but not hot) summers day!!
I started earlier than normal but just had to do a few quick sketches to start my day
I decided that I wanted to get into the city early and to take 45mins to do a building sketch – a slow down (rather than a warm up)
BTW this was a good earl grey tea (not that you care- I know…)
The Hyde Park Barracks is the first refined building to be built in Australia. I have been reading some architectural history in preparation for today – so added some notes down the side.
I had the strangest shaky hand at this time – look at my linework. At work I nromally draw the wobbly architectural lines but this was me trying to draw straight. Don’t know what caused it as I felt calm – just my hand was shaking! Weird!
