We were sketching at Ivanhoe Park. Much cooler there on this hot day.

Everyone was deeply absorbed, and because I’d given a time limit of 5 -10 minutes per sketch and move on, I took my own advice and sketched the Sketchers – 5 minutes each. Here are a few.

It’s a good exercise anyway. The colour went on later and that can become part of the sketch – using the paintbrush to ad extra lines.

This will be one of the subjects we cover in ‘The Art of Sketching’ course, coming up soon.
