Urban Sketching: Hotel Windsor
|Black and White version
|Me, at the scene.
Hi! I was sketching the Hotel Windsor yesterday on Spring Street. I've been told to try the high tea there before they close down the area for repairs. The Urban sketcher group where actually taking the week off this week but Evelyn invited me out to come and sketch for a bit before heading to my birthday drinks! My birthday isn't for a few days yet but I suspect am going to be working flat out this week.
One of my friends thought that I didn't need to colour the piece so I made sure to scan in the black and white version before colouring. I think it turned out really well and am most pleased. It got really cold yesterday though...so am drawing, standing up and leaning on a pole, balancing my book in one hand and freezing. I do love drawing outdoors though! Lots of fun! That said.....it's going to get really cold here in Melbourne soon and I may need to invest on some fingerless gloves.
