For today’s urban sketch meet we met at a funky little cafe in North Hobart called Pigeon Hole Cafe. Our small group of eight sketchers dispersed and drew a variety of buildings and houses. The hills and slopes added an extra level of perspective-challenge.
I chose to undertake this challenge on Goulburn Street. I liked that I could see a little of kunanyi/Mt Wellington just peeking over the roof of the building.
This is what I drew and started painting outside before I decided it was time to seek warmth and a well deserved cup of coffee.
…. and the finished wonky attempt.
I hope that everybody has had a lovely weekend and wish you an equally lovely upcoming week.
Thanks for dropping in for a read. Cheers, Patricia (PJ)
There’s a grand building on Letitia Street, North Hobart, Tasmania that I’ve always admired. It used to be a high school but now a funeral business owns it. I’m glad that they didn’t chisel off ‘High School’ from the front of it.
Tonight, in a spur of the moment decision, I decided to have a crack at sketching it. As always, it’s more complicated than it looks!! The ink in my ink pen was frustratingly not flowing well, so I switched to an Artline pen. Didn’t get as much done as I would have liked but here’s what I did get done.
