There is a lot of residential development happening in Sydney at the moment, so last week I headed to Rhodes, an area that is now full of multi-storey apartment buildings. I wanted to challenge myself to sketch a type of building that I don’t like very much which requires a slow patience approach. I am rarely in the mood for that!
I was especially tired after the craziness surrounding the start of my SketchingNow Buildings course, so the first stop was a cafe. Left of Field is a new cafe that is getting rave reviews. Their signature dish is hotcakes with Earl Grey custard. I just had to try it, didn’t I? It was very nice but the quantity was too much for me. Next time I will go with a friend so we can share.
It was a fun morning, but my computer was calling me. So time to head home and get back to video editing (Lesson 2 has a demo filmed on location in Venice!)
I am still developing a fast approach to sketching tall repetitive buildings, but this outing was definitely a step in the right direction.
So do you like sketching multi-storey modern buildings like these?
It’s not too late to join SketchingNow Buildings but I will be closing the doors on Wednesday 21 September and will not be offering this content again for at least six months.
