Red Cars @ Newtown

sketch 20160325 Red Cars

#0047  The challenge to draw red cars while waiting at the bus stop.  Most were barely still for more than 15 seconds!

PS. Looked better after I painted them although I don’t seem to have the right shade of red in my watercolour set.

PS.  Perspective went slightly astray in this one, hopefully the details made up for it.

Oriental Dumpling King @ Sydney

sketch 20160325 Dumpling King

#0044  A local food haunt – Oriental Dumpling King – in the middle of Dixon St in Chinatown.  Our favourite is the steamed port & chive dumplings – 16 for $10.80 – one for the value hunters!

PS.  Quite pleased to have done this quick sketch of the stall while waiting for our dumplings, the menu details were added later at home.

Wild Sage @ Cammeray

sketch 20160324 Wild Sage

#0041  A glass of wine and the chocolate lava dessert was our reward for doing a dinner time sketch.  The restaurant owner used to belt out songs from the opera in the wee hours of the night to entertain guests until local residents complained about noise pollution!
