2013 … trying again …

Sorry the previous post had a fault in it … we’ll see how this goes.

1st for 2013 is hopefully the first of 365 continuous postings … fingers crossed.

Summer is almost here although the water temp has stayed low for longer than usual.

Here’s one sketch I did of Mollymook Beach today. This corner of the world continually intrigues me… cold in winter … ideal in Summer.

Bar Coluzzi

Coffee shop sketch
Bar Coluzzi, Darlinghurst

To beat the early morning Sydney traffic I arrived in Sydney very early and found Bar Coluzzi in Darlinghurst … guaranteed to be open at 6am. I had plenty of time to throw down a few coffees and do this little sketch. Its a tight ¬†little shop so I was lucky to get a table and chair right near the action. Great coffee by the way.

Some Byron Bay moments

Guitarist and Bongo player in markets
Market Music

A recent photographic job in Byron Bay inspired the sketch book to come out and play… at home where we were staying and at the markets. Gravitating to the music groove of Tim Stokes I sat in the light rain and sketched the guys punching out the tunes. Of course these guys are not drawn to scale. Maybe I was just ‘closer to the beat’.

Still life
A nice little corner caught my eye.

If you really want to stay in a cool place in Byron try the relaxing Barbara’s Guest House in Burns Rd. Just over the track from ‘The Rails’ it is a short walk to everything.
