Sketch of teacher

I had to do a WHS course today and it was very interesting. In the first few minutes I sketched the teacher. It looks a little like him!

sketch of female reading

With no idea what to sketch today I suddenly realised that someone was sitting still whilst reading. Totally committed to loosening up I thought I could keep the pen flying around and gradually work towards an image (I’d just been reading a Brett Whiteley book). But once again here’s a ‘tight’ result. Although it looks only a little like the subject the result was somewhat pleasing. The subject was pleased too because it was getting too hot holding the pose. Tough for a speed reader.

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.

This is just brilliant. How is this for talent. Read more on the Art Gallery www HERE

With family and friends around over the Christmas break there was plenty of time to sit around, chat and doze off.
