Out and About : Newtown

Newtown is an inner west city suburb 4km from the Sydney CBD; originally a working class suburb and later affordable housing for university students and artsy types, the area has become popular for its cool, diverse and unique population within a stone’s throw from the city.  At time of writing, Newtown does not have its own McDonald’s restaurant (closed in the 1990s) – Phew!

Here is my collection of sketches from Newtown.

PS.  Recently discovered my favourite fountain pen has washable ink, shame because its so enjoyable to draw with.  Had to adapt to it using less water with the watercolour paints which makes the colours more opaque; noticed the bleeding effect works well for shading.
