Hobart’s urban sketching group met today at Lindisfarne Bay. Despite it being on the chilly side today, and that there was the sporadic burst of wind, we had an enjoyable and productive time.
I have always wanted to sketch the Tasman Bridge, which is a significant land mark of Hobart, especially with the history attached to it, the tragedy of a boat running into it and the loss of lives as a consequence of it being broken. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-05/memory-of-tasman-bridge-collapse-lingers/10684234
This is the view I decided that I would attempt to draw. Note the Cormorant standing on the rock near the shore and the pelican in the middle-ground approaching.
There was some drama on the water while sketching. A pelican made a b-line for a Cormorant standing on a rock, minding its own business. It had to make a quick exit along with the seagulls! I thought the pelican was going to try to eat it!
There was a very friendly magpie on the scene too.
I hope everybody has also had an enjoyable Sunday and that the upcoming week goes well for all.
Cheers, from Patricia Hopwood-Wade
