Tasmanian Update

I have had a couple of amazing days, doing a LOT of sketching which of course I will share in full details on my return home. But in the meantime here are a few highlights.

Starting with a big article in Launceston’s newspaper The Examiner. I love the title “full time travel sketcher”. I think that by sketching my life, I am on a constant adventure, I feel like I am traveling every day!

Details of my Launceston Travel Sketching workshop will be announced first via my March newsletter due out Tuesday 3 March. See below for form to subscribe.

While still in Launceston:


A latte in the sun using a squirrel brush I found in my kit.

A quick playful sketch of the Town Hall.

Another playful sketch, this one of the Gasworks.

On the Heritage Highway heading to Hobart, I decided to stop in Oatlands for an afternoon Devonshire Tea.

And then a quick visit to the Carrington Mill for a super quick sketch.

On arrival in Hobart, I am blown away by my AirBnB apartment which has a view of Mt Wellington from the bedroom window – more details and sketches to follow… ie. I plan to sketch more of the apartment tonight which watching some cricket!


A wet Saturday starting with a Jackman &McRoss coffee where I was spotted by Clare who heard me talk to architecture students at UTAS Launceston last May. I can’t hide anywhere!


Got a car spot in Battery Point with a view and sketched it from the drived seat (since it was raining)]


Met up with some local sketchers and we sheltered in the verandah of the Magic Curries place for these sketches.


And finally headed to Cornelian Bay – somewhere I have never been before! –  and sat in comfort to sketch the overall view. I hope to get back and sketch the boat sheds up close.
