On my weekly outs and abouts I do two things to satisfy the artist in me..I either indulge in some sketching or take photographs. I find sketching much more satisfying and therapeutic. I fancy becoming an urban sketcher (though I am using the term rather loosely here).
As the winter is almost upon us Melbournians..it is going to be a bit challenging to be able to sketch en plein air. But as long as we have cafe..we can sketch our coffee cup :)
These sketches that I am sharing today..I made these sketches while I was waiting for train/bus/tram, or during a lecture. I prefer to draw my lecturers and fellow students much more than taking notes, you see..every single bit of information is available online on university portal..so it's not like I am doing myself any disservice or anything like that. So these are two sketches from a lecture on assessment and learning..
our lecturer..I have no idea why I was drawing feet
my tiny moleskin notebook that I carry in my bag
a beautiful girl in my class, I loved her hair and 80s inspired cardi
another student in a hoody
at Ikea..my absolutely most favourite place to sketch
taking my son with me to Ikea meant I got to draw some toys too
One of my most favourite places to do some sketching is Ikea..I get free coffee and I plenty of inspiration to draw people, furniture and food. As I go to Ikea almost every week to sketch, expect more images from my sketchbook.
What is your favourite place to sketch outdoors?
