The Hobart Sketchers Group met at Fitzroy Gardens in South Hobart, Tasmania, today on this Day for Valentines. We had a nice group of ten gather at the beautiful and green gardens, including an urban sketcher from Launceston. kunanyi’s organ pipes were really well-marked and distinctive from this viewpoint. This mountain looks over Hobart and is a feature from many different angles depending which suburb you are viewing it from. The organ pipes could be so clearly seen from here.
I decided to sketch a house on Fitzroy Crescent, number 43. I had a clear view of the house until a car parked in front of me.
Then the owner of the house wandered across the street to have a bit of a sticky beak and was so enthusiastic about what we were doing and our drawings that he moved the car, rubbish bins and even offered to make us a cup of coffee!
Then he offered to take a photo of me drawing. I think it is quite a cool shot with the house so clearly in view. He’s got a photographer’s eye!
I mucked up the bay windows. I didn’t draw them big enough. Next time…..
Thanks for visiting and I hope that you make time to draw, drawing outdoors, indoors looking out or indoors looking in.
Take care, from Patricia (PJ Paintings)
