A totally stunning still autumn day in Sydney was perfect for exploring Surry Hills with my sketching friend Chris.
Today was a challenge day – trying different things and giving ourselves time restraints. My challenge was to use watercolour pencils… and waterbrush… but it didn’t take long for me to use paint and my sable brushes with water.
