Birds from the lost sketchbook.

A recovered sketchbook revealed some pictures including these birds. My favorite is the emus. I will do this one in acrylics. These are done in watercolour pencils.

Man and Beast.  Horse and riders

Sometime over the last 18 months I got interested in horses and the people who ride or control them. So I sketched. I don’t claim them to be of any worth, I just like sharing what I have done. Enjoy.

Beach sketches

The Sydney Sketch Group is going through the whole Alphabet this year, sketching in suburbs of Sydney. This week it was B for Balmoral. These are my 2 watercolours, naive style, from the day. I got a bit sunburnt on the day and am feeling the effects of it still a few days after.

Ashfield Park

Today I went with The Sydney Sketchers to Ashfield Park. We are going to try to do suburbs of Sydney going from A – Z sketching in a suburb starting with that letter of the alphabet that we are up to. This being the first meetup for the year, we start with A for Ashfield. We went to Ashfield park, where there are numerous monuments, statues, special trees and buildings. I concentrated a bit on the Mary Poppins statue in the Childrens playground area, but also did a strange ride that was there as well as some deap palm fronds which I found to be a good subject.

Here are the results
