Sketch-meet

On the second Sunday of each month, a small group of Hobartians, set up on footpaths of streets, parks, or the like, to do some urban sketching. This Sunday we sketched on New Town Rd with easy view of the old post office stores, Jackman & McRoss Bakery and Dispatch Cafe.

Post Office Stores – I drew firstly with a grey texta to try to help me not get too caught up in the detail.

There was about 10 minutes before we were to meet at Dispatch Cafe, so I used my grey texta and applied watercolour to do a very quick drawing of Jackman & McRoss Bakery.

We met at the Dispatch Cafe for a lively cuppa and throw down.

Mosaic in Dispatch Cafe

I took photos of the awesome mosaic in the washroom at Dispatch.

I hope that you have a good week and keep the pen/s drawing.
