Gore Hill Oval @ St Leonards

sketch 20160724 gore hill oval

#0163  Offspring #1 played two back to back footy matches here which afforded me a bit of time to sketch.

PS.  This was quite a challenging sketch.  There was way too many things going on and it was kinda hard to simplify.  I initially drew the club house and added stick figures much later as the sketch seemed too bare and uninteresting … perhaps a note to self to keep practicing drawing crowds rather than avoiding them!

Out and About : North Sydney

North Sydney

North Sydney is a commercial precinct located north of the Sydney Harbour Bridge; the area is much quieter on the weekends where most of the activity is around the local produce market and North Sydney Oval away from the train station and tall buildings.

Here is my collection of sketches from North Sydney.

PS.  Ran out of black ink for fountain pen; temporary blue-black replacement doesn’t scan as well.  Interesting how different the effect is with the coloured ink, probably good to persevere till the blue runs out just for the experience.

Kurtosh @ Crows Nest

sketch 20160710 kurtosh

#0149  Trying the kurtosh at new cafe today.  Its a Hungarian pastry and looks like a stack of donuts but is similar to a flat bread baked around a wide stick with a variety of toppings.  Offspring #2 chose nutella version.  They also sell yummy cakes and slices by weight here so we’ll have to come back again soon.
