February’s Sketch Meet

Hobart’s monthly sketch meet took place at Wendover Place, New Town, Tasmania. I chose to draw and paint the historic Wendover House.

My view on the day. A cloudy day and hence no harsh shadows.

I drew some outlines with a watercolour pencil, trying to keep in the forefront of my mind not to draw too much roof. I think if you can nail the roofs, the rest of the structure works out. It’s still a bit off but the accuracy is improving. I then did ink outlines with my Fude pen, which I’m loving.

I was going to add paint, only to discover I had forgotten it. So, I then decided to draw more and make the unusual fence the feature of the drawing, rather than just leaving it as a suggestion.

I found painting it a little tedious so I left some unpainted. It is always difficult to decide when enough is enough. I’m happy with just the little bit of green I’ve added to the hedge. I like the white left behind.

Finished version…. I think????

It was a great afternoon spent with ten urban sketchers.

Thanks for visiting!
