First Attempt at Outdoor sketching......

Last Sunday we went down to The Rocks for a stroll and some lunch.

It was a really warm day and we had lunch at an outdoor cafe in a quiet square.

After lunch Andrew and the boys were walking around nearby so I pulled out my sketch pad and started sketching a man doing his cross word puzzle just across me. I was doing okay but then a pigeon decided it wanted to eat some of our leftovers right off the table which caused a commotion when other birds realised they could do the same so I jumped up screaming and so did the two girls at the nearby table. We all burst into laughter soon after and my hubby just rolled his eyes with embarrasment....


  1. I like this one... I can't recall the last time I tried to sketch outdoors. Keep enjoying it!
    cheers, LJ

  2. this turned out very well!!!! i was never good at realistic drawing... and when we had to go outside for class to draw, i was always pulling my curls from frustration... haha...

    your illustration looks peaceful... it has a very relaxing feel to it!


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
