Ok… the big scan has begun. I am just going to post quickly this trip with just a brief description of each sketch and then hope to wrap up with some more detailed posts after the bulk is done.
Day 1: Starting on the plane as usual and doing my kit for the trip. First use of the new stock moleskine – more detailed review to follow.
Hobart: Wonderful soup at a very cool cafe Basket & Green and then well starting with the most iconic part of Hobart- Salamanca Place. The lovely warehouses that form the background to the famous markets (missed the markets both Saturdays in Hobart this trip!)
Re-doing the sketch of the old Bank building designed by Butler. I think it is now houses Heritage Tasmania. Did this in the fading light and rain!
And some simple sketches over dinner at Fish 349. North Hobart is a very handy place to be staying near – so many great restaurants in a small area.
Day 2: Hobart. Start with a tea from a cafe renowned for great coffee! Pilgrim Coffee. It was a slow morning so I wanted to get my teeth into a serious architecture sketch….
The Town Hall – sat in the shade to sketch and got very cold…needed some soup to warm up!
A few hours in TMAG (Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery) in preparation for my workshop there. These were a few objects on the ground floor galleries done in watercolour pencils with watercolour added later.
One more sketch in the courtyard and then despite being very cold I did one more crazy sketch of the front facade of TMAG on the waterfront side.
So cold that I need another cafe visit- the only one that I could find that was still open was Pilgrim Coffee so went back. Quiet evening in my B&B room and ended up sketching my chair.
