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.
While still in Launceston:
A latte in the sun using a squirrel brush I found in my kit.
A quick playful sketch of the Post Office.
Another playful sketch, this one of the Gasworks.
So many fun buildings to sketch in Launceston
Heading south on the Heritage Hwy
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 driver’s 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.
