Today I started my SketchingNow adventures again – this week it was Balmain. For various reasons, the high temperature of the day being an important one, I didn’t make a full day of it and in fact, only did one ‘real’ sketch!
The last few weeks of my Foundations course are devoted to location sketching principles which I want to demonstrate out on the streets. These are a lot more involved than the videos I film myself at home – the ones today took up most of the morning for me and my wonderful assistant! Just before I left to head home for a late lunch, I sat on the pavement at the intersection of Darling and Nicholson St and sketched this lovely sandstone building on the corner – OddFellows Hall.
There is so much to sketch in Balmain – that I hope to come back soon and sketch all day!
