The Urban Sketchers Sydney events just seem to get better and better. Despite the ‘rain- heavy at times’ forecast we had a fantastic turn up of 34 people this morning to the Sydney Hospital courtyard.
My favourite sketching days are always the ones when we are all sitting together in the one area, so this courtyard was ideal. And a nice roomy cafe was a good base!
The first in brown ink was just a warmup while I was waiting for people to turn up… so I got distracted! The second, a watercolour sketch of the turret was interrupted by rain on two occasions.
The third sketch with my mixed grey ink had to be aborted as I ran out of ink! It was good to see what it was like to do one of my ink sketches in a A4 moleskine watercolour sketchbook rather than the 9 x 6 Alpha book which has been my only sketchbook for a while now. It was good to get back to the larger format and true watercolour paper again.
I also did my EDiM sketch for the day but will group these sketches together early next week. In the mean time you can check out my ‘daily’ sketches (of course no Sunday for me) on my flickr or facebook.
