Sketches from my summer break

February 9, 2018 | 9 Comments

I’m trying to get back into the habit of blogging more regularly, so today I want to share with you the sketches which I did over my “Summer Break” – the end of December and the beginning of January.


Lunch and a quick sketch at Bare Island with Esther Semmens (who was visiting from Scotland).

It was hard to find some shade to sit in!


A big group turned up to an ‘adhoc’ sketching day and a small gang was still sketching at 4pm (inset).

Super quick loose sketch of the Sydney Opera House.

First sketch of Susannah Place

Two more (talking all the time!)

Simple line drawing at Foundation Park after lunch.

My last sketch of the day was this one of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.


A day in the bush on a hot day. (Bush = Australian for forest)

I managed to sneak in a little sketch because I gave up early on the bushwalk!


Last chance sketching with Esther on the way to the airport

I need to come back to Balmain and sketch some more soon!


On the way to an USK SYD sketchmeet at Watson’s Bay – it was incredibly windy on the ferry but at least I tried to sketch!

Big scene sketched small, small scene sketched big.

One more at Watson’s Bay.

Ah, it’s so good to get back to the discipline of sharing my everyday sketches… and I even scanned them too!
