Student Sketches

It’s always very rewarding for me when class members so enjoy their sketching that they send me email and text images of them. Here are some for you to enjoy………

August 23 ’14.

Two more sketches from Therese in those chilly Arctic regions on her Canadian cruise. I’m sure the 11am champagne loosened up your sketching arm and we are delighted to see these from so far away.

August 8 ’14. From Therese away on her Canada adventure, has 2 sketches completed of the enormous Capilano suspension bridge, plus the fascinating totems from the same area. We saved you a chair at class today Therese!

July 30 ’14.    Debra, a new sketcher sent this today. I’m so impressed.

Today it was my girlfriends birthday and we enjoyed a bush walk at America Bay. I took along my sketch pad and tools and gave my girlfriends a quick Erin Hill sketch class. They loved it and were happy with their 15 minute sketch & colour. I thought you might like to see.

Cheers Debra Gillis

From Atsuko, who’s very fond of using the crayon medium at the moment, with it’s texture and playful colour.

Hi my teacher Erin,
Here is my sketch of last week. I quite like it although I also think It’s a bit too serious. At least I left much white.
I’ll probably try to use more crazy colours and more like illustration next time !

Dec 23 ’13. Both Pam – who’s down the coast in Pambula, and Therese – who’s at home in  Sydney, have sent sketches of Christmas ‘goings-on’. Loved both these. Hope it was a great Christmas back in Aus – while I’m in NZ.

Palmiers at St Honore, by Pam, Jo and Therese

July 3 ’13. I was thrilled to get this pic from Jo, our yoga leader, and Pam and Therese. We are between terms so were in a French cafe in Mosman, sketching. Great work girls. I’d love to try a palmier. Sounds like a yoga move!

Madrid strawberries from Therese

April 26 ’13.  Erin this is my first proper sketch of the holiday. Have tried a few buildings but need to get my eye in. We visited a market in Madrid today and bought 250g of strawberries for .50 euro. They were wrapped in a cone of plain paper and we ate them with lunch at the cafe at the reina Sofia art gallery which has a lot of Spanish art including “Guernica” by Picasso.

Love Therese

Jan 18 ’13. Some very dedicated sketchers turned up at Manly Lodges’s delightful Cafe for our Cafe/Sketch this morning – as it rose to 44 degrees!!!!!!! . Unfortunately I turned out not to be one of them due to a meeting I was attending. Thrilled to know that Bridget, Glenis, Ethna, Jenny and Robbie were all in attendance.

So proud of my sketchers.

Dec 18 ’12. Atsuko was in NZ. ‘The summit and some parts of Mt. Cook were covered with snow. The real view was much more beautiful, but never mind as I enjoyed the time of sketching.’ Atsuko.

Jan 6 ’13. Just in from Helen. Sketched while having coffee at Armchair Collective in Mona Vale. A glorious homewares store where you can dream of ditching what you have at home and getting that ‘whatever’ you’ve got your eye on, while sipping coffee. Great sketch.

Jan ’13.  Jenny has been in Sri Lanka. Although she hadn’t known much about the place prior she said she was just so enthralled with everything….culture, art, architecture, cave paintings 2000 years old. This is a market roadside stall which caught her attention.

Dec ’12. I was so delighted when Toni sent me this. She’s become a very keen sketcher and I love seeing her progress. Toni’s enthusiasm for sketching has given her inspiration to start a new business. Watch this space.

Dec 30 ’12.  Robbie has been travelling a bit lately and I love how these images pop up on my phone just any time. This is a girl who has difficulty holding a pen due to a muscle issues, so we have a laugh about her being ‘Master of the Wobbly Line technique. Her sketches are an absolute delight.

Dec 31 ’12.  Katherine is relatively new to sketching. She’s been attending Saturday classes and is totally addicted. I love seeing how confident she’s become about her own ability, and it’s showing in other parts of her life. Two sketches of blooms she’s very fond of.
