Urban Sketching: Federation Bells



This is not what I was drawing today but yesterday.  I've got loads of stuff to show for tomorrow and quite a bit to talk about!  Wait for the post tomorrow.  Now, I went Urban Sketching with the Melbourne Urban Sketchers group yesterday and this was a lot of fun.  This one took ages to draw too.  I was using my big landscape book yesterday.  These are Federation Bells, in Birraung Marr Park, a bit of a walk away from Federation Square.  It's a gorgeous view of the city from there.  All of us who were sketching were waiting for the bells to start and when they did...oh my gosh, it just wouldn't stop!  I mean, it started at 12:30 pm and we thought it would just go for a few minutes but half an hour later, it was still going and driving all of us sketchers a teeny bit mad!  It was great to catch up with the sketchers.  Sketch meets are fortnightly now and I don't always get to go and lately I have been way too busy to go out on location to sketch.  I really want to do more though.

For other news...one of my pieces was used for a flyer without my permission.  I am happy to report that he has apologized for the transgression and with the help of friends on facebook, hopefully the point of not stealing somebody elses artwork hits home.  I think it did.

Anyway, stay tuned for the post tomorrow.  It's going to be a big one.
