Hello, hello! Was at the Botanical Gardens today with the rest of the Melbourne Urban Sketchers (the meetup is getting big) and I decided to draw the Government Building with a few of the others. It was a lot of fun! Quite a few friends came today too from Studio Moshi. It was a good day all around!
I took the big panoramic sketch book today and it takes me forever to draw and it really is quite cumbersome to bring around. With that book, I need to be sitting down (tried to draw standing up and it hurt my left wrist) and with a table and if I don't have a table, I need to draw in portrait so I can use my legs to support the weight. I was also trying to pencil today and it really doesn't work for me. As soon as I ditched the pencil, things flowed much better!
