We have an exciting event here in Sydney over the Anzac Day long weekend… a Sketchmeet with about 60 sketchers (25 being out of towners from as far as Carins and Adelaide). Today was the first day of events and here are my collection of photos. I started the day catching a ferry to Manly for a little pre-event sketching.
I tried sketching the Sydney Opera House from the crowded Manly ferry, but it was more a case of sketching from memory as my view was about 95% blocked!
and their view looking down The Corso towards Manly beach.
We retreated to a cafe (no sketch) but when we noticed the dramatic lighting on the Sydney Opera House had to get back outside.The light changed quickly – notice the shadow of the Harbour Bridge on the Opera House shells in the second photo.
If you are in Sydney and want to join in their is a public sketchmeet tomorrow
Saturday 23 at Cockatoo Island at 1.30pm. We will be on the top of the island sketching.
